Analyzes, applies, and evaluates nursing and other healthcare activities of local, national, and global communities, including health promotion, disease prevention, public health, and social justice efforts. Explores influencing socio-cultural, epidemiological, economic, and political issues. Partners with community agencies to apply community health nursing principles to promote and maintain population self care.
This course will prepare students already familiar with nursing care issues and processes to think about the health and nursing of populations. In this section, we will be looking at issues that affect the health of families and/or family members residing in Northern WA Counties. We will work with service providers on projects that enhance community health programs. These projects vary each quarter, and will be conceived and developed by students in collaboration with community health informants and providers. Students are encouraged to be creative and interactive with Skagit County health professionals.
