The Nurse Practitioner Residency in Emergency Medicine currently accepts 2-3 candidates each year based on a competitive application process. Strong preference will be given to candidates who have had significant prior emergency medicine or critical care experience. Board certification from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) or the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) in acute care, emergency or family practice is required to enter the residency.

Application materials may be sent to the residency program each year from January to May. Candidates selected for a personal interview are scheduled to visit the Medical Center beginning in the May. In June, the residency program extends offers of acceptance. A new residency class begins in November and lasts 15 months.
