Carolinas HealthCare System is launching a new Center for Advanced Practice to improve recruitment, retention and training of advanced care practitioners, such as nurse practitioners, physician assistants and certified registered nurse anesthetists and nurse midwives.
The new center, opening this spring, will offer a graduate acute-care nurse practitioner program in partnership with UNC Charlotte and a paid, post-graduate fellowship program for nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
Classes in the advanced-care nurse practitioner degree program will begin in August, with 6 to 15 students in the initial class. The post-graduate fellowship program, starting in October, will accept about 20 nurse practitioners and physician assistants every six months. The center will also offer professional development services aimed at retaining advanced care practitioners, who are in high demand across the country.
