The face of healthcare and our society are changing. People have difficulty accessing or paying for health services. One approach to meeting the needs of the under served is the utilization of nursing centers. The Augsburg College Department, in collaboration with Central Lutheran Church, maintains a no fee nurse managed center. Many nursing centers face continual difficulties in remaining viable or have closed because of funding issues. This project was developed to garner support for the Augsburg Central Nursing Center from Evangelical Lutheran Churches in America (ELCA) churches in the area. Fostering this relationship can provide necessary items and monies for the center while being a positive element for clients, nurses, and the community alike.
