The Quad Council of Public Health Nursing Organizations would like to celebrate that “Nursing is Public Health”. We have limited opportunities to network and celebrate all the activities that nurses contribute to in public health. We would like to use a roundtable session to discuss academic settings that are integrating public health into every specialty program. Will this cause public health to be highlighted or integrated out? We would like to explore other APHA sections were nurses are very involved, such as in environmental health, maternal child health, epidemiology, etc. How can we work to unite as public health nurses? There are several national initiatives to support public health nurses as leaders and we would like to discuss these programs and their outcomes. Public health nurses are also being called to be involved with the new Action Coalitions to implement a “Culture of Health” in every state. We would like to discuss the implications for public health nursing research, practice and education with these new initiatives.
