Nursing Teams

ISL’s nursing teams actively participate in health clinic service, in partnership with local community agencies, in an effort provide acute care and public health education to vulnerable populations. Volunteers are introduced to issues relevant to healthcare professions such as nursing, medicine, social work, counseling, education, and allied health professions.

Our nursing program was developed to provide a learning experience that strengthens cultural competency in an ethnically diverse setting, while providing genuine service in developing communities.
