The CHIC is a structured, agency-based, year-long clinical rotation for family nurse practitioner students that desire a future practice in community health. The CHIC experience matches family nurse practitioner students with a primary practice site that will serve as the student's home clinic. Once established in his/her clinical practice at this site, students will rotate to other PCC sites and service areas.
In addition to direct-care clinical hours, CHIC participants will meet periodically to review clinical issues and cases and participate in provider meetings. Depending on their program requirements, students will also be expected to participate in practice improvement projects, community health projects, or the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) project for credit in relevant coursework.
The deadline to complete this application is March 13, 2017.
The projected start date for students accepted into the program is May 22, 2017.
