Vanessa Baldwin working with student nurse and patient at House of Peace

For over 30 years the UW-Milwaukee School of Nursing has been working alongside residents in Milwaukee to promote healthy communities. Health information and care coordination services along with varied and engaging health promotion programs are the hallmark of the nurse-led partnership sites.

Nurse clinicians partner with program managers at the centers to coordinate health education and prevention services for guests and residents from the surrounding area. Many UWM School of Nursing and other health professional students benefit from having their community health clinical experiences at the House of Peace and Silver Spring Community Nursing Centers.

Located within the Capuchin Community Service House of Peace site in the Walnut Way neighborhood, the Center staff develop strong and lasting relationships with clients and are active advocates for their health and well-being.
