“A community service for the benefit of students and residents”
Patients come to the Lafayette Street Family Clinic in downtown Fort Wayne for a variety of reasons. Some are there for breast exams, others for STD and HIV screening. Others still are worried about a suspicious bump. Patients come from every corner of the region.
When patients walk through the door at the Lafayette Street clinic, it’s a nurse they see and a nurse they tell their fears and hopes to.
Students at the IU School of Nursing in Fort Wayne can choose to spend time at the clinic, learn about their work, their patients, check vitals, observe, and listen to experienced Nurse Practitioner Kelly Wakefield.
