3154.0 The Current State of Public Health Nursing in Practice, Education and Research

Monday, October 27, 2008: 10:30 AM
Emotional intelligence (EI) training is an innovative and powerful leadership development strategy. EI is the ability to recognize, understand and use emotions effectively. While employees are usually hired for their cognitive intelligence and technical skills, studies show how success as a leader ultimately depends on emotional intelligence. The Public Health Intervention Wheel is used in public health practice for administration, research and education purposes. The authors of this paper will demonstrate its usefulness. The Doctorate of Nursing Practice gained through distance learning is shown as one way to build the public health infrastructure with competent public health nurses.
Session Objectives: Describe three benefits of "emotional intelligence" competency training for nursing leaders. List three examples of how public health nurses use the Public Health Intervention Wheel as a practice-based model. Discuss two strategies for assisting PHN leaders to obtain their Doctor of Nursing Practice through distance learning opportunities.
