Community Nursing Centers

The College of Nursing has provided surrounding neighborhoods with innovative health delivery programs for more than 20 years through community-based nursing centers. The solid success of these centers, which provide services to some of the most underserved populations, laid the foundation for the Institute for Urban Health Partnerships (IUHP), which was launched in 1996 with a grant from the Faye McBeath Foundation.

The Institute provides organizational support of the College of Nursing’s two community nursing centers (CNCs): House of Peace Community Nursing Center and Silver Spring Community Nursing Center.

  • These academic nursing centers are established in partnership with community-based social service organizations in underserved, ethnically diverse, economically disadvantaged neighborhoods.
  • The centers, staffed by advanced practice nurses, nurse clinicians, and administrative support personnel, provide a range of health services across the lifespan, with an emphasis on targeting uninsured and underinsured populations.
