The program increases experiential training opportunities for senior-level BSN students in primary care community-based settings by
- establishing and expanding upon academic-practice partnerships between schools of nursing and community-based clinical sites; and
- providing senior-level BSN students with meaningful clinical experiences and training in medically underserved and rural communities.
