Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) recognizes the pivotal role that physician assistants and advanced practice registered nurses fulfill, not only in the clinical setting, but also in academic, research, and administrative settings as well. Never has there been a time when these pivotal roles have become more crucial in healthcare settings across the nation. With the landscape of healthcare evolving at such a rapid pace, healthcare systems are pressed to evaluate the need for change. As one of the leading healthcare organizations in the Southeastern United States and one of the largest public, not-for-profit systems in the nation, CHS is committed to a core value of, “Patient First, Always.” In maintaining a patient-centered approach, we look to transform and innovate the way our services are delivered across our system through optimizing the skill sets of our more than 1500 advanced clinical practitioners (ACPs)–nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified registered nurse anesthetists, certified nurse midwives, and clinical nurse specialists. Along with this transformative process, CHS is dedicated to supporting the lifecycle of our ACPs through education and transition to practice, as well as the maturation of professional development.
