What are your plans for Thursday, April 12th at Noon CST? This very important date is not only my husband’s birthday (we’re getting so old!), it’s also the date of our live ThriveAP+ info session. ThriveAP+ is the learning adventure of a lifetime. Not only does the program match participants with clinics that helps out underserved patients, it assures that their first year of practice will take place in a supported environment with a supplemental clinical education. If you’re a nurse practitioner considering doing a residency this year, we hope you’ll attend to learn more.
ThriveAP+ supports new graduate nurse practitioners and physician assistants in two primary ways:
- Matches new graduate NPs & PAs with supportive facilities that provide a gradual transition to autonomous practice.
- Provides continued didactic education with a 2-day kickoff conference followed by weekly online classroom sessions.
What kinds of things can you expect to learn with ThriveAP+’s curriculum? Let’s put it this way – our curriculum focuses on the top diagnoses you can expect to treat in primary care. We believe that if you gain a deeper understanding of the top diagnoses you can expect to encounter, you’ll be good at most of your job. Imagine looking at your patient care schedule each day, reviewing each patient’s chief complaint and thinking to yourself “I can handle that!”. In a nutshell, that’s our goal for nurse practitioners and physician assistants participating in ThriveAP+. The program’s curriculum includes topics like “Palpitations in Primary Care”, “Chronic Kidney Disease”, “Overview of Topical Medications” and “Initiating Insulin Therapy in Diabetic Patients”.
We are still accepting applications for our next ThriveAP+ cohort that kicks off in September 2018. You can check out the online application here.
