5187.0 Advancing Public Health Nursing Education

Wednesday, November 11, 2009: 12:30 PM
Novel approaches to education are important to consider as public health nursing moves forward to address current health issues. Tools currently available can be used by educators to effectively teach new skills. This session discusses nursing education using a Learning for Performance approach tested with Armenian nurses, an innovative medical English e-learning program for foreign-born nurses, a public health nursing core competencies tool used with doctoral nursing students, and a collaborative academic-community partnership with doctoral students to decrease childhood obesity.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe two innovative approaches nursing education programs may consider to enhance learning outcomes. 2. Articulate two ways that PHN educational programs can demonstrate acquisition of necessary skills for practice.
