NURS 457 - Population-Focused Care for Registered Nurses

Credits: 4

This course emphasizes population-focused nursing practice which promotes healthy environmental conditions, lifestyle, and behaviors that improve the health of a community or population.  Registered nurses build on previous clinical experience with a focus on community assessment, including use of epidemiologic data to determine lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors that are major determinants of population health.  Emphasis is placed on primary prevention, health promotion, disease and injury prevention across the lifespan.  Students collaborate with other professionals and stakeholders to identify and reach out to populations who might benefit from service, and apply evidence-based practice, including immunization, screening, and counseling to prevent and manage health conditions, prevent disability, and mortality.
