  • 24-months of intensive education

  • Competitive salary and full benefits

In order to apply for this residency, you must provide the following documents:

  • WA state license

  • Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) certification

  • American Nurse Credentialing Center (ANCC) certification

Program Overview

To expand access to high-quality care in a way that meets each patient’s individual needs, PCHS has adopted a model of team-based, collaborative, and integrated care in which behavioral health clinicians, primary care providers, pharmacists, and dentists all work closely together, sharing the same electronic health record and are often seated together in the same area.

PCHS is committed to providing effective and efficient behavioral health care in the primary care setting. Our new Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner Residency Training Program will provide comprehensive training for delivering evidenced-based care in the field of mental health and substance use disorders to uninsured and underserved populations, all under our Collaborative and Patient-Centered Medical Home Model.

This program will provide an invaluable experience working with a diverse population of patients with a variety of conditions. Experienced providers will work side-by-side with residents as they treat patients in various outpatient health care settings at PCHS. Program staff will support residents in advancing their skills in delivering behavioral healthcare specific to the needs of each individual patient.

Program Structure

This residency is divided into two main components: the first year, where the resident will be actively monitored by experienced psychiatric nurse practitioners, and the second year, where the resident will practice independently with their own panel, under the guidance of experienced psychiatric nurse practitioners.
