The USF College of Nursing has secured a four-year, $3.85 million Health Resources and Services Administration grant for a mobile health unit (MHU), which will be used for nursing education as well as helping improve health in disadvantaged Tampa Bay communities.
Continued funding for the next four years will depend on meeting proposed metrics for the 21-foot MHU, which is complete with two exam rooms, a bathroom and pop-up awning.
Staffing will include two APRNs, a patient care coordinator, faculty preceptor and students. The MHU will offer primary care, care for common acute and chronic health issues, tests and immunizations.
