Partnership with UCLA, UC Irvine, UC Davis , UC San
AIW has entered into a reciprocal arrangement with the University California School of Nursing throughout the state, to collectively obtain a large grant that will provide all entities a solid financial foundation to build an innovative state-wide Nurse-Foster Parent program that will help train nurses, to improve outcomes on large numbers of medically fragile foster care preemies, infants and children. UCLA is working towards a new nursing paradigm of independent Nurse Foster Providers (i-NFP); an in-home nursing program that focuses on the special needs of medically fragile foster care infants and children. The administrators and professors at UCLA have been extremely gracious and generous in donating their time, talent and resources to ensure the obtainment of this significant government grant.
Once again, the nurses and volunteers who donate their time and talent to help AIW reach its mission, would like to extent our heartfelt “Thank You” for your support towards our cause.
