Nurse

WKNC is supported by St. Elizabeth Health Care who supplies an on-site nurse once a month.

 

Often, people, particularly the under-housed, have barriers accessing health care for a variety of reasons such as lack of an Ontario Health card, lack of transportation or negative past experiences with the healthcare system.

 

Having an on-site nurse practitioner reduces these barriers by going directly to the people. There is no need to make an appointment, get a referral or present an Ontario Health card to visit with the nurse.
 

What the Nurse Practitioner provides:

 
  • on the spot care

  • educational services

  • referrals to specialists

  • remove barriers to accessing a healthcare professional
