4120.3 Linking Education and Practice for Excellence in Public Health Nursing (LEAP)
Tuesday, October 28, 2008: 10:30 AM
The "LEAP PHN" Leaders project was developed to address community nursing workforce issues in rural/frontier states. Rural populations are often identified as "vulnerable populations" due to geographical, occupational and socio-cultural factors. Session speakers will also discuss academic/practice linkages that are designed to improve nursing education.
Session Objectives: Describe an innovative curriculum incorporating PHN competencies into a RN/BSN completion program. Discuss the value of academic/practice linkages to improve contemporary nursing education.
