How to become a member
Welcome to University of Illinois Nursing and Health Care Associates (UINHA), the membership group of the University of Illinois Nursing Service Plan (NSP). The NSP is a legislative mechanism for faculty to receive additional payment for revenue-producing nursing services, and managed by the Institute for Healthcare Innovation (IHI) in the College of Nursing.
These services include direct patient care services and indirect professional services such as consulting, expert witness service, and provision of continuing education programs.
NHCA has exciting opportunities for faculty practice (direct patient care, consulting and continuing education) and will be developing new opportunities based on faculty expertise and desire to participate.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete the application form (link to application form pdf-shown below) and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org at the Institute for Healthcare Innovation. Your name and interests will be added to our NHCA Membership List.
Thank you for your interest.
