ARNP Fellowship Application

Our fellowship mission: 

The mission of the Premera Rural Nursing Health Initiative fellowship is to cultivate autonomous, confident, and competent nurse practitioners through collaborative and structured clinical education, providing continuity for compassionate, evidence-based health care that improves access and  health outcomes in rural populations. 

The ARNP Rural Fellowship application for the 2022-2023 cohort will be available on December 1, 2021 and will close on February 10, 2022.   Offers will be made to approximately 10 candidates on April 8, 2022.

ARNP post graduate program:

With support from the Premera Foundation, the Rural Nursing Health Initiative (RNHI) invites new post graduate Nurse Practitioners from across the country to apply for a 12-month fellowship designed to partner newly graduated ARNPs with rural healthcare practices for employment opportunities in Washington state. Partnerships between healthcare organizations and UW Premera Rural Nursing Health Initiative will offer a unique fellowship experience of programmatic expertise, academic excellence, and a robust professional network intended to enhance your professional competency and confidence in the rural clinical setting.

Rural primary care organizations across WA state have partnered with the UW Premera RNHI Grant to recruit  recent ARNP graduates for each of their respective 12-month paid fellowship programs, with the second cohort starting in September 2022.
