FALL ONLINE ONLY "Nursing and Health Promotion" (9th-12th)


This course examines the need for the development of health promotion/wellness initiatives to improve the lifestyle practices of individuals and communities within the context of population health. Emphasis is placed upon the health and environmental patterns that promote or interfere with health attainment and risk reduction. Using a project-based learning (PBL) approach, students will develop a health promotion project (HPP) based on the standards outlined in Healthy People 2020 and an assessment of need. Project-based learning is a dynamic classroom approach in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges in order to acquire a deeper knowledge. This course is best suited for students interested in pursuing health-related career occupations.

This course will be offered in Fall Session B (Nov 7th and Nov 14th).

Course Leader: Janice Garrison Lanham
