Orange County to get first nurse-managed medical facility
Southern California Public Radio

UC Irvine has landed a federal grant to help pay for Orange County’s first nurse-managed medical clinic. Santa Ana charter school El Sol Science and Arts Academy and the non-profit Share Our Selves will operate the clinic with UCI’s nursing program.

The academy for preschool through 8th grade students already maintains a clinic for basic health education and referrals. The Irvine nurses-in-training will offer free medical treatment and health screenings to students and their families, many of whom don’t carry health insurance.
