Neighborhood Christian Clinic

About TNCC:

The Neighborhood Christian Clinic (TNCC) is a privately funded medical and dental clinic for uninsured and underserved communities in Phoenix. The clinic also supplies and dispenses all its medication in-house. There are several doctors and nurses on staff, but volunteers make up a large part of the workforce. The clinic sees patients from a variety of backgrounds, and anyone, regardless of religious background is invited to volunteer!

Volunteer Roles:

Volunteers can serve as translators, nursing assistants, or work in the medication room. Volunteers self schedule their shifts so volunteering can be adapted to fit most schedules.

Nursing

Nursing assistants are in charge of rooming patients, getting a limited history, doing some point-of-care testing (A1c, blood glucose, urinalysis, UPT, etc.), and putting in orders for referrals and labs.

Volunteers work alongside Bertha or Gio, both nurses at TNCC.

Translator

Volunteers work with a provider to translate the visit. The majority of the clinic's patients are Spanish-speaking.

Volunteers often work with Dr. Wong or a volunteer provider.

Medication Room

Volunteers are responsible for filling prescriptions and documenting what medications are dispensed.

Monday shifts 8:30 ā€“ noon 12:30 ā€“ 5 pm 6 ā€“ 9 pm
