This course focuses upon the clinical application of community-oriented/public health nursing concepts. Students, under the supervision of a designated preceptor in a community/public health practice setting, will apply theoretical, scientific, and humanistic principles as they work with aggregates in the community to implement interventions aimed at achieving positive health outcomes. Nursing care delivery systems in the community that promote health and prevent illness in population groups will be explored. The role of the professional nurse as community leader is emphasized.
