Service-Learning Across Central Florida

Nursing is about caring for the health of our community. UCF College of Nursing students make a big impact across Central Florida through service-learning.

Traditional and Second Degree BSN students as well as many graduate nursing students are assigned to one of 17 Community Nursing Coalitions (CNCs), which serve five counties in Central Florida.

Through CNCs, UCF nursing students provide vital health education and screenings to some of our region’s most economically disadvantaged residents while gaining valuable “real world’ education.

One example is the award-winning interdisciplinary Apopka Farmworkers Clinic, which is supported thanks to the generosity of the Florida Blue Foundation.

Groups of students are supervised by a faculty member and work with our community partners, providing care and health information across the life span from infants to seniors.
