    Naval Medical Center - Portsmouth

    In 2016, Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP) was the first DoD medical command to obtain accreditation with the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Practice Transition Accreditation Program (PTAP) for its Nurse Residency Program.

    Accreditation is a one year process that consists of a 500 page self-study submission, an appraiser review and virtual visit, a nurse resident survey, and the final Commission on Accreditation final decision. NMCP’s Nurse Residency Program is a six-month program in length for both military and civilian nurses, and it is intended to improve clinical competence, confidence, and to transition military and civilian Registered Nurses, with minimal clinical experience, to military medicine and the profession of nursing. On Nov. 23, the program received reaccreditation with ANCC’s Practice Transition Accreditation Program.

    As the U.S. Navy's oldest, continuously-operating military hospital since 1830, Naval Medical Center Portsmouth proudly serves past and present military members and their families. The nationally-acclaimed, state-of-the-art medical center, along with the area's 10 branch health and TRICARE Prime Clinics, provide care for the Hampton Roads area. The medical center also supports premier research and teaching programs designed to prepare new doctors, nurses and hospital corpsman for future roles in healing and wellness.
