"to increase access to nursing care for underserved, vulnerable populations and improve the quality of health care services delivered by community health centers and state and local public health agencies. Nurses for America will enhance the knowledge and skills of nurses to provide care in these settings and for these populations, while promoting service and civic engagement."
What a wonderful way to serve! Registered nurses can sign up for a two-year salaried position at a community health center, faith-based neighborhood clinic or public health department. In addition to an education award and student loan deferment, participants receive a 2-week intensive training, mentorship, and continuing education. For more information, visit www.nursesforamerica.org or contact Nurses for America at (202) 687-4772 or NursesForAmerica@georgetown.edu.
This is one of many ways to spend two years in service or prepare for a Masters in Public Service from the Clinton School of Public Service.
