Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles County


FNP Community Care Residency Program

The Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Community Care Residency Program is a 12-month residency program designed in partnership with the Chin Family Institute for Nursing (CFIN) at California State University Los Angeles (Cal State LA). This 12-month post-graduate program supports the needs of CCALAC member clinics and their patients, while simultaneously providing intensive training and on-the-job experience to new and recently graduated Family Nurse Practitioners who are committed to developing their careers as Primary Care Providers.

Through this program, FNP Residents will work at a CCALAC member clinic and be able to increase access to quality primary care for the under-resourced and special populations that will prepare the Residents for full and autonomous expert care of complex underserved populations across all life cycles. FNP Residents will also improve their clinical skills, confidence, productivity, job satisfaction, as well as contribute to employer satisfaction and workforce retention. The residency program is a full-time, 12-month salaried position. Up to 6 Six (6) residency slots will be available for the 2023-2024 FNP Residency class. (*Photo: 2022-2023 residents)
