Nursing Clinics

Widener Community Nursing Clinics offer pro bono medical care to uninsured/underinsured individuals in the Chester community.

Hands-On Patient Care Experiences for Our Students

The clinic also provides our nursing students with valuable experience in non-hospital settings. The clinic is staffed by nurse practitioners and registered nurses from the School of Nursing faculty, students, alumni, and community volunteers.

Throughout my time at the clinic, I have formed relationships with patients by helping them and listening to their concerns. The clinic provides a caring place for community members, and for students, a place to strengthen their skills and gain experience. — Caroline McCoy '22
