FSU School of Nursing provides free and mobile health services

Fayetteville State University School of Nursing has partnered with Truist Mobile Health in order to provide free health services in Cumberland County.

Family Nurse Practitioner and Assistant Professor of Nursing Christy Swinson, who’s been teaching for 15 years, said the purpose of the mobile clinic is to provide access to health to the community and allow nursing students the opportunity to fulfill their clinical hours.  

“In Cumberland County, we have an extraordinary amount of health inequities, especially for the underserved minority population, so by having the mobile nursing unit, it can help decrease those health inequities,” said Swinson, who’s been working in the medical field for more than 20 years.

The university purchased the RV through state funds, Swinson said. The design on the outside was created by a nursing student who won a contest to come up with the design, she said.
