Community Health (NURS 4163)

The philosophy of Primary Health Care will provide direction to an exploration of public health nursing. Students will learn how to do a holistic community assessment and plan and evaluate health promotion activities relevant to an identified community population. Students will understand the role and scope of the public health nurse. An understanding of epidemiological concepts is central to public health nursing and will be integrated throughout the course to expand the understanding of community as client. An exploration of local and global socio-political trends will emphasize the need for inter-sectoral collaboration and action.
