About this course
During this theory and clinical course, students will be guided to think critically about the role and core competencies of community health nursing in promoting health, preventing disease, and restoring health. The nursing process is applied to individuals, families, aggregates and communities within diverse population and ecological contexts. Emphasis is placed on the synthesis of concepts, theories, knowledge, and practice from nursing and public health sciences to determine the health status, needs, and assets of communities and their members.
