Cultural Diversity. The student will apply all previously gained knowledge from nursing course work to working with individuals, families, communities, and other aggregates. Public health nursing will be introduced as a blend between health promotion, disease prevention, health education, and population-based initiatives. The epidemiological process is introduced as the unifying concept for the wide range of programs and services found in community health. Beginning skills in assessing a community are integrated. Coordination with other disciplines to provide disease prevention, health promotion, and protection interventions is stressed. The impact of the external environment on the health of individuals, families, and aggregates is emphasized. Themes of social justice and care for vulnerable/marginalized populations will be integrated throughout. The student will also examine the role of the nurse as an advocate for health care policy to ensure the health of populations.
