I would suggest searching on Google to see many different outreach options available for nurses in your area. There are many online opportunities as well if you are struggling to find one in your desired location.

I know John Hopkins offers partnerships and outreach programs to serve uninsured / under served populations throughout Maryland. This sounds like it definitely meets some of things you are looking for in an outreach program. I also saw with a quick Google search that the Miller School of Medicine has a very similar program available in Maryland.

Feel free to reach out to universities and other business that offer outreach programs! They will be happy to provide yo I with further information on how you can get involved.

I hope that was helpful!

John’s Answer

I'd say the first question you'd have to ask is "What is my career goal for Nursing?" The term "nurse" can mean anything from a nursing assistant program which can be completed in a short time period and taken at many very affordable community colleges, to obtaining an RN degree -- typically competed at a four year college, even to completing a Nurse Practitioner Degree -- which involves much more than a four year program. Many nurses continue their study as they work, progressing to higher levels of nursing.

One thing which all the above have in common is that almost all nursing jobs are in critical shortage with so much of today's population being older.

John recommends the following next steps:

[A good website which compares options and programs in nursing](https://www.allnursingschools.com/registered-nursing/learn-how-to-become-a-nurse/)
Look for scholarship program. One [such example](https://www.navy.com/careers/nursing)
