Nursing and health care professionals are at an all-time low in the U.S., but a growing number of programs offer opportunities to help those with limited resources access care.
The American Nursing Association (ANA) has teamed up with Health Access and Wellness Solutions to launch a new program that offers a variety of opportunities for those with a limited income to get access to primary care and more.
This month, the program will launch with the new Nurse Practitioner for the Homeless (NPHT), a program that will provide a one-on-one consultation with a nurse practitioner, nurse practitioner support group, or other qualified health care professional to help them access health care.
The NPHT will be available for all members of the U,S.
population, regardless of income.
Members of the program can use the program as a one off to get started, and will be paid a one time fee of $30 for each visit.
To qualify, members of this program must be a resident of a county with a population of at least 100,000.
