NURS 251 - Community Health Nursing: Advocacy for Population Health.


Credit(s): 4
Prerequisite(s):  NURS 200 , NURS 220 
Corequisite(s): NURS 251S . If a student must withdraw from NURS 251, they must also withdraw from NURS 251S .
This course emphasizes advocacy of populations and addresses issues, trends, and patterns of health at local, national and international levels. By doing a thorough community assessment at assigned clinical sites, students will identify community problems and concerns. In collaboration with key persons at their clinical site, students will plan, implement, and evaluate an intervention specific to their clinical community. Nursing activities that promote the health of populations and that advocate for the marginalized will be stressed. Theories and principles of public health national policy and public health nursing will be analyzed and incorporated in both the didactic and clinical components of the course. Note: Failure in the didactic component (grade less than B-) will result in repeating this course when offered. Offered spring semester only.
