Hackensack Meridian Receives $3.4M for NP Residency Program
Hackensack Meridian Health announced it received a $3.4 million award from the Health Resources and Services Administration to launch a comprehensive nurse practitioner residency program. Funding under this initiative is geared to both planning for new program development and expanding existing postgraduate nurse practitioner residency programs.
“We are proud to receive this federal grant to support our ongoing efforts to train exceptional caregivers to deliver the highest quality care for all,” said Chief Executive Officer Robert Garrett. “With these funds, Hackensack Meridian Health will help prepare new nurse practitioners for primary care practice in community-based settings in order to bridge the gap between the demand for and supply of primary care practitioners in New Jersey, particularly in underserved and rural areas.”
