Nurse-led medical-legal partnerships (MLPs) incorporate lawyers into the health care team to overcome barriers to patient health. When patients access more solutions to health problems, they have healthier lives, families, and communities.
Nurse-led health centers provide our nation’s most vulnerable populations with access to high-quality, affordable health care. NNCC recognizes health is impacted not only by bio-medical factors but also by the social and physical environments in which patients live. This is why NNCC’s network of nurse-managed health clinics are incorporating new ways to meet the needs of communities they serve.
NNCC also manages a local program based on MLPs, the Nursing-Legal Partnership.
