Applicants Sought for Young Nurse Clinician Programs

The deadline to submit your application to any of the UI College of Nursing’s Young Nurse Clinician Programs—YCNC, YPNC and YGNC—is quickly approaching.

The Young Community Nurse Clinician (YCNC) program offers a competitive and selective mentored program for undergraduate nursing students who are strongly considering a career in community and public health nursing. Under the leadership of Sue Lehmann, clinical assistant professor, students will participate in extracurricular clinical activities that will help them achieve their career goals.

The Young Pediatric Nurse Clinician (YPNC) program is an elite pediatric mentoring group, led by Clinical Instructor Vanessa Kimm, MSN, for undergraduate nursing students interested in future careers as pediatric or family advanced practice nursing.

Last but not least, the competitive Young Gerontologic Nurse Clinician (YGNC) program for undergraduate students provides intensive clinical and leadership experiences with faculty and clinician mentors for students interested in future careers in gerontology. The YGNC’s are led by UI faculty member Barbara Kyles, MBA, BSN.

Application materials for any of these programs are due April 1.  For more information, visit the Young Nurse Clinician Programs’ home page.
