Here at ThriveAP HQ, we’re stoked about the response we’ve received to the announcement of our residency-like program for nurse practitioners, ThriveAP+. This new program allows nurse practitioners to transition from education to practice with purpose. If you’d like a spot in MMU’s inaugural Fall 2016-2017 class, here’s how to apply.
The ThriveAP+ application and placement process is pretty straightforward. The following steps outline what you can expect if you proceed with the application process (we hope you do!).
Step 1: Complete Application
The MMU application packet helps us get to know you on a personal and professional level so we can maximize your chances of success in the MMU experience. Documents required with your app include:
- The ThriveAP+ application
- Transcripts from your graduate nursing program
- A CV outlining your education and professional experience
- One professional and one academic reference
Keep in mind that applications are due February 29, 2016.
Step 2: Initial Phone Interview
We want to get to know you! Once application materials have been submitted, qualified applicants will be contacted for an initial phone interview. This gives us a chance to evaluate your interests and further assess your qualifications.
Step 3: Matching Process
Participating ThriveAP+ sites will be presented with applicants that meet the practice and healthcare needs of the setting. Specialty, location, practice culture, and individual preferences will be taken into account.
Step 4: Facility Interviews
Applicants matching with a MMU facility will interview directly with a representative from the MMU site. This gives the applicant a chance to evaluate the prospective site to see if it seems like a good fit for the MMU experience. It also gives the site a chance to evaluate your interests, qualifications, and fit for the practice.
Step 5: Final Decision!
Acceptance and placement decisions will be made in collaboration with the nurse practitioner applicant, the host facility and ThriveAP. Look forward to the MMU kick-off in Nashville, Tennessee!
The MMU experience is intense and rewarding. If you have a heart for service learning and a passion for the NP profession, we encourage you to apply!
