Faculty Practice

The College of Nursing maintains and participates in nursing and interdisciplinary clinics for women, children, adults and the elderly with special emphasis on underserved and rural populations. In 1998, the College incorporated its Faculty Practice Association, which generates income to strengthen the College’s educational and research programs and provides financial incentives to practicing faculty members.

Patients include acutely-ill newborns, HIV and AIDS patients, pregnant teens, adults with mental illnesses, elderly people with disabilities and children with sensory impairment. Faculty practice sites serve as extended classrooms for both undergraduate and graduate nursing students who join faculty members in providing care.
