Gain practical experience providing health services to underserved populations in Baltimore City by participating in the School of Nursing Community Outreach Program.

Students will work at placement sites while completing the prerequisite course: NR 100.426, Community Outreach to Underserved Communities in Baltimore. In this 1-credit, introductory course, offered during the fall semester, you’ll gain a broad perspective on factors affecting the health of various communities in urban Baltimore.
