NURS 6730 - Public Health Nursing Leadership


(5 cr., [3 cr. didactic, 2 cr. practicum]) The development of leadership strategies that support the delivery of population health by the public healthcare system is imperative to quality outcomes. Students address the application of principles and theories of leadership and management in a public health setting as well as the skills needed for nurses to provide effective leadership across agency partnerships at the local, state, national, and international levels. Special focus is placed on developing collaborative partnerships, systems thinking, evidence-based decision making, organizational problem-solving, public health finance and budgeting, accreditation, emergency preparedness, and global health competencies. Students complete a practicum with a public health-related agency emphasizing program evaluation and the use of management and leadership skills. (Prerequisite(s): PUBH 6475.)
