NUR 630 Health Promotion and Disease Prevention for the Advanced Practice Nurse

3 Credits

This course offers advanced practice nurse students an opportunity to critically examine issues that impact on the promotion of health and prevention of illness. Epidemiologic principles related to individual, family, and community health promotion are also examined within a multidimensional framework. Clinical preventive services for health promotion, community and population strategies, as well as the role of complementary and alternative health modalities, are also studied. In addition, the roles of the health care provider and patient are examined in relationship to counseling and communication, including genetic counseling. Healthy People 2020 objectives and the Social Determinants of Health are used as a focus for an in-depth analysis of health promotion interventions for populations.
