We are so excited over here at ThriveAP headquarters about the success of ThriveAP+. The inaugural year of our residency-like program for nurse practitioners is off to a strong start. We have nurse practitioner new grads, and even a few experienced NPs, jetting off to locations across the country to interview with prospective sites. Some have even finalized commitments to work with populations in areas of medical need for the 2016-2017 ThriveAP class.
We can’t thank our ThriveAP applicants enough for their commitment and excitement about the program. We are looking forward to a year of facing the challenges and triumphs of life as new grads working in medically underserved communities together. Our applicants to the 2016 class have been top notch and ThriveAP+ sites can’t wait to have them as part of their teams.
If you are interested in participating in ThriveAP+’s Fall 2017-2018 class, we would love to have you apply to the program!
