About the Student Healthcare Project
The CSUSM School of Nursing Student Healthcare Project has been designed to provide basic community and primary healthcare to the underserved.
Care is provided by licensed professionals and CSUSM School of Nursing baccalaureate and graduate nursing students under the supervision of licensed volunteers (RNs, APRNs, physicians, and allied health providers) in collaboration with faculty and staff from CSUSM School of Nursing.
Acute and chronic disease management and referral as well as disease prevention activities and prescription refills are offered (learn more about our services). The volunteer staff and students assist clients in accessing other healthcare related resources and provide personal hygiene products and clothing on a case by case basis.
The mission of the CSUSM School of Nursing Student Healthcare Project is to provide high quality, community-based, client-centered, free healthcare utilizing the trans-disciplinary approach with healthcare professionals, students, and community members. The healthcare project is focused on serving the working poor, and under/uninsured residents of San Diego County in a respectful and compassionate manner.
The vision of the CSUSM School of Nursing Student Healthcare Project is to promote well-being, public health, and enhanced quality of life by serving the holistic needs of the community
