Nursing 405: Community Health Nursing Practicum

This clinical course is designed to be a synthesis of community based nursing and community/public health nursing with the goal of promoting and preserving the health of populations. The ability to prevent disease, maintain well being and promote health through organized community effort is derived from public health. This course also recognizes that community health practice is responsible to the community as client with services provided to individuals, families and groups to promote health and prevent disease. Students will apply knowledge and skills from nursing and public health sciences to expand their understanding of caring for a community's health. The community of southwest Santa Rosa will be focal point of this experience.
