Nurse Led Primary Care at Urban Correctional Transition Centers: A Faculty Practice Partnership Mode
This faculty practice partnership model focuses on the role of a doctorally prepared RN in leading health care to those who are incarcerated in a community correctional transition center. Numerous health disparities affect people who are incarcerated (PWAI). Half of PWAI have at least one chronic health condition. Challenges exist in providing cost-effective and quality health care to PWAI. Unlike jails and prisons, correctional transition centers typically do not offer clinical care on site. A nurse led health center offers a viable solution to address needed healthcare and provide opportunities for nursing students to work with PWAI

Leveraging Faculty Practice to Lead Change Towards Health Equity Across Nebraska
UNMC College of Nursing Faculty Practice is based upon a model of external contracts with practice partners that span the entire state. Our faculty practice model allows us to be present and fully engaged in communities across the entire state, paving the way towards health equity in Nebraska. Additionally, our model has two-fold benefits on supporting nursing promoting health equity: by providing hands-on care in areas where social determinants are a dominant health factor, and by modeling/teaching students from these communities.
