NUR 140 - Fundamental Nursing Care of Populations & Communities

Semester Hours: 6

This course allows students to apply theoretical and empirical knowledge in using the nursing process in community settings to promote, maintain and restore population health. The course will explore social determinants of health and their impact on individuals, communities, and society at large. Principles of community health nursing will aid students to demonstrate population-based competencies of engaging stakeholders and community-based organizations to improve the health of individuals, families, and specific aggregate groups. Theories related to cultural humility and population-based care will be explored for their impact on epidemiological illness rates in rural and underserved communities. A clinical practicum will enable learners to utilize evidence-based practice and quality improvement science to complete and examine a community needs assessment.
