Community Health Nursing

Five semester hours, three theory, six clinical.

Community health nursing emphasizes the development of knowledge and skills learned during an RN clinical experience integral to working with populations and communities. Epidemiological principles provide the framework for conducting community assessments. RN students will work in mutuality with community groups to assess their health and community needs. In partnership with the populations and communities, RN students will examine the entire range of health needs and resources (folk and traditional) available within these populations and communities, identify strengths and weaknesses of those resources, and plan to address the community’s felt needs. Prerequisite: Core complete or permission of instructor.
