Integrated Community Psychiatry Nurse Practitioner Fellowship

 

An intensive one year fellowship that builds confidence and competence in newly licensed Nurse Practitioners

Integrated Community Psychiatry Nurse Practitioner Fellowship

In the fall of 2018, Portage Path Behavioral Health started its Integrated Community Psychiatry Nurse Practitioner Fellowship. With financial support from Peg’s Foundation and the Summit Portage Area Health Education Fund, the Fellowship is designed to build confidence and competence in newly licensed nurse practitioners. 

This planned and comprehensive training program includes practice-based learning, and other supplemental activities in an integrated community mental health environment. Fellows are provided a full-time position with benefits, intensive mentoring, a rotation through outpatient, emergency evaluation and crisis stabilization facilities, close coordination with primary care and pharmacists, individual, peer and group supervision, weekly didactic sessions, and ongoing nursing professional development.

Qualified individuals will have earned their Masters degree or DNP, have received state certification as a PMHNP within the last 18 months, and be seeking to pursue a career in community mental health.

Applications are accepted for the fellowship between Jan 15 and April 15 of each year, with Fellowships commencing September first.  For more information, please contact ICPNPF Program Director James Tudhope, DNP, APRN, PMHNP-BC at jtudhope@portagepath.org.
