Quarterly, as part of Families Moving Forward outreach, my church houses and feeds homless families. I would like to offer my services as an RN during these times to do health screenings and health counciling for these families that have extremely limited access to healthcare.
But what, exactly, can I do? It's not like I can prescribe medications or order tests. Sure, I can take blood pressures and listen to hearts and lungs, but what then? They have no primary care giver to refer them to.
Obviously, I wouldn't practice outside of my legal scope of practice, but with such limited resources, what services am I able to provide?
Any advice would be helpful!
