NURS 453 - Community Health Nursing

Research-based theories, concepts and the nursing process are emphasized using critical-thinking skills to provide holistic nursing care. A community-based/population-focused nursing process is applied to community health concerns. In community-based settings and homes, students use standards of ethical professional nursing practice to assist clients of all developmental levels with acute and chronic health concerns and their families to restore, maintain, and promote health, attain optimum well-being, or to die with dignity. The concepts of prevention, promotion and maintenance of health are explored in depth and applied to community settings. Responsibility and accountability for nursing care, collaboration, resource conservation and use, respect for human worth and dignity, national and global concerns, and a commitment to a servant leadership lifestyle are foundational to effective clinical judgments and client outcomes. Three lecture hours per week and 96 clinical hours. This course is eligible for honors credit.
