The Family Health Center is scheduled to open for business on May 2014. The clinic will relocate from its previous Broadway and 12th St. location and is scheduled to open at the first floor on the new Math and Science Building in the corner of 16th and Broadway St.

There are approximately about 23 locations in San Diego County and will be a very accessible clinic to civilians and will be a great opportunity for nursing majors that have qualified in the graduate nurse program. The nursing department has an average of 130 students every year.

All nursing students can qualify to work in the Family Health Center if they have passed the nursing exam and qualify as registered nurses. Graduate students from the nursing programs are qualified to work anywhere registered nurses are accepted such as hospitals, psychiatric facilities among other places.

“I was delighted, absolutely delighted.” said Deborah Berg, dean and director of the nursing department at City College, regarding the partnership with Family Health Center. “We have been looking for a way for our students to get out in to the community setting.”

With the clinic scheduled to open its doors in May of next year, it will open several doors to endless opportunities to nursing majors and become part of the expanding campus and nourish patients and nursing students alike.
