Updates from the STAR² Center
September 10, 2018

The 8-month Postgraduate Residency Learning Collaborative is designed to help Federally Qualified Health Centers develop postgraduate residency programs for new family nurse practitioners and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners who have recently completed their academic program of studies. This Learning Collaborative will support health centers who are ready to move from the planning stage to implementation.

Apply by October 1 to be considered for this learning collaborative opportunity!

Under the direction of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the STAR² Center has worked with NACHC and the 18 other HRSA national cooperative agreement (NCA) entities to develop an online health center resource center. The Health Center Resource Clearinghouse is designed as a one-stop online repository of training and technical assistance resources developed for health centers by the 20 NCAs. Topics include finance, operations, workforce, quality improvement, capital development, HIT/data, governance and emerging issues. Click here to take a look!
