Seton Hall’s College of Nursing is embarking on a groundbreaking initiative to address health disparities and promote health equity: The Nurse-led Mobile Health Training Project—a collaborative effort between Seton Hall University and Newark’s Department of Health and Community Wellness. Graduate students in the College’s Nurse Practitioner programs have the chance to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the medically underserved while furthering their own education and professional development.
The first cohort of students reported that their experiences have been transformative.
Students enrolled in the Nurse Practitioner programs will gain hands-on experience on a mobile health unit, working alongside experienced preceptors and physicians, plus receive a $10,000 stipend upon successful completion of the clinical semester.
Join us in making a meaningful impact on the lives of the medically underserved! To learn more about this opportunity and contribute to advancing health equity, contact Gabby Zengewald at . Application deadline for the Fall semester is August 15.
