Nurse Practitioner Program

PHH is educating Nurse Practitioners (NP)

Most Haitians do not have access to primary care. The infant and maternal death rates are the highest in the Western Hemisphere. People routinely die of preventable and treatable diseases. Nurse practitioners can reverse these statistics by providing the care they are trained to provide.
NURSE PRACTITIONERS SAVE LIVES and the cost is miniscule. It is rare to get the kind of bang for the buck that a PHH donor gets. The cost of educating one Nurse Practitioner will save thousands of Haitian lives over the course of that Nurse’s career.


Advanced practice nursing education provides graduates with a fuller understanding of the discipline of nursing in order to engage in higher level practice and leadership in a variety of settings and commit to a lifelong learning.

Advanced practice education prepares the graduate to:

  • Lead change to improve quality outcome.
  • Build and lead collaborative interpersonal care teams.
  • Navigate and integrate care services across the healthcare system.
  • Design innovative nursing practices.
  • Translate evidence into practice.

PHH’s Family Nurse Practitioner Graduate Program is the first program of its kind in Haiti.
