This course focuses on using community health concepts, sciences, and theories basic to the development and maintenance of the public's health. An exploration of the history of community health nursing, global nursing concerns, biostatistics, epidemiology, and health prevention efforts will be integrated with concepts relating to holistic, caring, integrative health promotion. The student will be assisted to begin to develop a clinical community health or global health experience, which uses principals of partnership building and population-focused, community-based approaches to healthcare. The nursing decision-making process and use of evidence-based modalities may be used to facilitate work with individuals, families and groups in a variety of diverse or global community settings.
