NURS 6150 - Promoting and Preserving Health in a Diverse Society


(3 sem. cr.) Prevention of illness and promotion of a healthy lifestyle leads to improved quality of life and are often more cost effective than treatment or intervention. Students in this course explore health improvement and disease management/prevention initiatives intended to promote healthy societies worldwide. They examine the effects of social, political, and environmental conditions in relation to healthcare access, quality of care, and cultural relevance. Students also examine the contributions of nurse leaders who work to improve health in society. Using these examples as well as theories learned in the course, students research a contemporary health issue, develop and explicate a community health project, and describe the models or process they would use to evaluate their project for efficacy.
