Community Health Nursing is a required 8-credit course, consisting of 2 credits of lecture and 6 credits of clinical, normally taken during the Fall or Winter Term of senior year. Students assess physical, social, and cultural environments, identify populations at risk, and implement and evaluate appropriate nursing interventions. During clinical practice they apply the nursing process in delivering community health nursing services in partnership with health agencies and communities.
Current juniors, who will be seniors next year, can take N456 Community Health Nursing in Spring 2018, the term prior to the start of senior year. Clinicals will include six weeks in a local community health agency followed by three weeks of global health field work in Oaxaca, Mexico.
