Stephanie Burgess says in her interview below: Stephanie Burgess, PhD Clinical Professor, Associate Dean for Practice and Health Policy University of South Carolina, College of Nursing Yes, every time I enter the local medical clinic at our local shelter. I am there two days a week overseeing the Mental Health Scholars` clinical group in providing inclusive care to this incredibly vulnerable population. As a non-profit organization, the shelter has very limited resources, including human resources. Musc College of Nursing has a great partnership with the shelter, and I often wonder how much more we could do if the practical restrictions of the APRN were lifted. Health Policy Reform: As a President Scholar at MUSC representing the College of Nursing, I remember a road trip to Columbia for Legislative Day. We met with representatives from all over the state, who are also health care providers. .
