The NC AHEC is providing funding for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Clinical Site Development project for a first year in support of the SON Mobile Health Clinic to serve the community.
Founded in 2016, the UNC School of Nursing Mobile Health Clinic provides free nursing services to meet the health care needs of clients of Wake County crisis ministries. The clinic is staffed by School of Nursing faculty who are registered nurses and nurse practitioners.
According to NC AHEC, “This proposal meets the intent of the legislation by increasing the experience of bachelor of science nursing students in an area of special clinical need and with at-risk populations in rural and/or underserved communities. Nursing students will gain experience working in a mobile clinical learning environment, assessing social determinant of health, performing health screenings, conducting health education, and connecting clients to community resources.”
The amount granted is $10,000.
