Global Community Health Assessment in Oaxaca, Mexico

Overview

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.
