Erie is seeking eight recently-graduated (since January 2019) nurse practitioners (FNP, PNP and AGCNP) and Certified Nurse Midwives to participate in a new paid fellowship program, AdvancingPractice. AdvancingPractice is a one-year intensive training program that builds on academic programs to prepare new NPs and CNMs to become expert clinicians as well as nursing leaders.
You will learn from the best! Erie and the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing (UIC Nursing) have partnered to create this program with the goal of expanding access to affordable, quality healthcare in under-resourced communities.
Erie is national leader in quality of care and top Chicago workplace. It employs over 50 APRNs within a truly collaborative practice model. UIC Nursing is known for having one of the nation’s top 10 APRN degree programs nationwide. The fellowship model was selected and funded by the US Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) from a competitive pool of applicants.
Erie Family Health delivers high quality care to over 73,000 medical patients and 12,500 dental patients in the language of their choice and with respect for their cultural values and beliefs. Nearly all of our providers are bilingual in English and Spanish. Our community-based health centers are portals to high-quality care—and a higher quality of life—regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. Erie serves patients from 13 sites, including seven large primary care facilities (four with integrated, on-site dental care), five school-based health centers and the only freestanding comprehensive teen health provider in Chicagoland. At Erie Family Health Center, we believe health care is a right, not a privilege. Our mission is to provide accessible, affordable and high quality health care for those in need.
