The only housecall course in the nation training nurse practitioners on how to start a housecall practice

Are you a nurse practitioner or other clinician who has wondered how to start a housecall practice?

Have you ever wondered how to get paid from making house calls?

Have you ever just wanted to know how to incorporate health information technology into a housecall practice?

Nola the Nurse.

It's important to teach the next generation of children about the role of the advanced practice nurse. Nola the Nurse is the social educational arm of Nola Central City Clinic.

"Each home Nola visits celebrates a different culture," said Dr. Lawson. "Just like in the real world, every home and everyone is different, whether it is their culture or belief system."

This series aims to increase an awareness about STEM careers and foster cultural sensitivity.
