Community Health II: Cancer and Smoking Education Project:
An education plan should be developed in order to decrease the number of adults that smoke. The number of cancer patients that continue to smoke after being diagnosed should be decreased as well.
Community Health Nursing II builds upon the foundation provided in N492 Community Health Nursing I. From a theoretical and scientific framework, the concepts of epidemiology and disease transmission, comprehensive assessment of risk factors and health problems, program planning and intervention, environmental health, and collaboration with the interdisciplinary team are explored. The practice experience component focuses upon developing and evaluating health promotion programs, family assessment, community assessment, and community-based home care within the context of the community. The nursing process is applied with the goal of promoting and preserving the health of populations. It is anticipated that 70-100 practice experience hours will be required to complete this health promotion project. **Please note, students who hold an RN license in WA are required to complete a minimum of 80 practice experience hours in this course.
