Routes to Rural Readiness: Enhancing Recruitment and Retention of Nurse Practitioners in Rural Primary Care Through Residencies

This study will identify characteristics of successful models of postgraduate NP clinical training programs that support NPs’ transition to rural employment and effective practice through interviews with key stakeholders at rural and rural-serving primary care NP residencies.
