For Clinics

Communities across Nebraska need well-trained, committed and enthusiastic healthcare professionals. UNMC is launching a residency program unlike any other.

uNParalleled is designed to help you find the right nurse practitioner for your facility, offers financial and educational support, and ultimately leads to lower turnover rates and greater value to area citizens and your primary care clinic.

Be a first in the region

As part of this one-year residency program, we will integrate a licensed nurse practitioner into your clinic — with the intention of guiding them to full time, permanent employment at your facility following their residency.

Gain a highly trained professional to work alongside you in improving community health in your local area.

Access additional support and financial resources from UNMC to provide the maximum benefit to your patients and team members.

Demonstrate leadership and a clear commitment to your community members, area businesses and others.

Be part of an exclusive group of primary care clinics who will help shape the Midwest’s first Nurse Practitioner Residency.

Designed to support community health and employment needs for Nebraska communities

Our goal is to prepare nurse practitioners to best serve the unique needs of Nebraska communities. By facilitating a more gradual introduction into the primary care environment, clinics like yours will gain highly trained, long-term providers who understand your needs and have a strong desire to improve the health of area citizens. Below is a snapshot of what a typical week of the program may resemble.
