UCI Lands Federal Grant, Preps To Open Free Nurse-Staffed Clinic In January
By early next year, the county's first nurse-managed clinic will open in downtown Santa Ana and thanks to the $1.5 million federal grant landed by UC Irvine's Nursing Science Program, some locals will have access to free services there.
Nurse practioners, who are also faculty members at UCI, will staff the clinic, says university spokesmanTom Vasich.
Nursing students also will shadow their teachers to get much-needed, on-the-job experience, he says.
