Growing numbers of nurse practitioners (NPs) are entering emergency medicine at a time when emergency departments are experiencing an increasing practice intensity and acuity. In this context, to further prepare NPs for a career in emergency medicine, postgraduate educational programs have emerged in the United States: from post-master's programs with 300–400 clinical hours in emergency medicine to intense residency or fellowship tracks with 2,000–3,000 clinical hours of training. This article describes the development and general organization of one such residency at New York Presbyterian Hospital–Weill Cornell Medical Center, while also noting several broader trends in emergency medicine and emergency NPs in the workforce.
