Health Care on the Move
TXAN Mobile CARE, School of Nursing
The Texas A&M School of Nursing Mobile Care Access through Rural Engagement and Education, or TXAN Mobile CARE, provides mobile primary care in rural counties across Texas that lack access to critical medical services while also giving nursing students invaluable clinical experiences. The mobile care units, which travel to Hearne, Leon, Iola, Brenham, Burton and Round Top/Carmine, offer annual physicals, immunizations, screenings, substance abuse education, behavioral health, cancer screenings and more. Designed to recruit nurses from rural populations, TXAN Mobile CARE also includes opportunities for psychology, public health and dentistry students to engage in telehealth technology, promote culturally sensitive practices, and provide oral care and education.
