Tulane Brinton Nursing Fellowship
Tulane University School of Medicine has partnered with Charity School of Nursing, Delgado Community College to promote community-based training for its nursing students. The purpose of this fellowship is to expose nursing students to community-based care, to utilize classroom skills on the field, to deepen the understanding of the social determinants of health (i.e. economics, education, geography, etc.), to prepare students for careers by interacting directly with patients and actively participating as a member of the Medical Home Team, and to strengthen workforce development and training. Nursing fellows are selected by Charity School of Nursing leadership.
Fellows provide support to nursing staff and other clinical staff; work closely with case managers and medical office assistants; shadow nursing and other medical staff; assist with triage and immunizations under the direct supervision of a physician; assess vital signs, allergies, referring physician, glucose monitoring under the direction of licensed personnel and document appropriately; communicate clearly and concisely with co-workers all relevant information necessary for quality patient care; report all unusual conditions or patient reactions to the staff physician; and provide patient education as required.
Capacity Building/Community Engagement
Fellows participate in community-based education programs (i.e. monthly focus talks, health fairs, screenings, etc.).
This program is supported by a generous gift from the Brinton Family.
