(One Love) has highlighted the ongoing medical needs for our local homeless population. Without this program, I can’t see ANY way that this population could have managed their complex medical issues.”
During the COVID crisis, student nurse practitioners have had limited access to clinical opportunities. Creating a positive environment for students to learn, and for patients to receive high quality care has been a great collaboration.
My experience with One Love as a family nurse practitioner (FNP) student) provided one of the best experiences of my nursing career. Meeting this resilient group of people and dedicated healthcare professionals helped to elevate my nursing practice. I experienced a deeper nurse- client relationship in this nontraditional setting. I have a better understanding of the unique life and healthcare challenges unhoused people face, and a restored commitment to reducing health disparities in vulnerable populations. Thank you Touro University and Dr. Bunker- Alberts for this experience!
