Community Advanced Practice Nurses (CAPN) clinic was founded in 1998 by the professional staff of the Georgia Nurses Foundation Women and Children’s Clinic when the Georgia Nurses Foundation chose to redirect its health care mission. The clinic staff remained committed to their mission to care for persons who are medically underserved and the Atlanta Women’s Foundation, in its commitment to women and children, provided fiscal responsibility for CAPN until its separate non-profit status was achieved. The main clinic is in a women and children’s emergency shelter in the Old Fourth Ward. The on-site location allows for immediate access to a population with a high intensity of health needs and minimal access to health care. CAPN nurse practitioners and psychiatric clinical nurse specialists are on-site daily to provide immediate care. During the last nine years, CAPN has expanded to provide on-site primary care services to eight other shelters across Atlanta.
