Program Overview

Nurse Practitioner Fellowship, at orthopedics rotation 


As a Community Health Center, Lamprey Health Care has long valued the critical role Nurse Practitioners play in the primary care team. In 2015, we set out to establish New Hampshire’s first formal mentoring and precepting program with the goal to build confident, competent Family Nurse Practitioners. The program curriculum aligns with our mission to provide high-quality primary care, with an emphasis on prevention and lifestyle management, to all individuals regardless of ability to pay.

Why Choose Lamprey Health Care?
