Give to the School of Nursing Student Healthcare Project –
A Free Community Healthcare Clinic)
Help us bridge the gap to quality, accessible healthcare for our neighbors in need.
The Student Healthcare Project is a community health clinic that was founded in 2011 to provide FREE medical services to low-income, underinsured and uninsured residents living throughout San Diego County.
Licensed medical professionals, nursing faculty, and undergraduate and graduate nursing students volunteer each week at the clinics to serve approximately 75 child and adult patients weekly at clinics in Carlsbad, Escondido, Ocean Beach, and Normal Heights.
Medical services range anywhere from researching free prescriptions for their patients, to health screenings, giving vaccines, providing medical treatments, providing mental health services, providing hygiene care items, laboratory services, assisting with social services or case management, providing sexual and reproductive health information, providing chronic disease management or helping patients to apply for MediCal or other health benefits.
Your donations help student nurses learn first-hand what it takes to provide healthcare to underserved populations. Under the guidance of faculty and medical professionals, student nurses build compassion and dedication that will inform their research and practice. The beauty of the Student Healthcare Project is that it not only supports higher education in the medical field but it also is a gift to the community.
By donating to this student project, you not only support our nursing students’ success, but you also help San Diego County’s most economically vulnerable people get the compassionate, high-quality healthcare that they need.
Stay tuned on how you can support!
