NURS 326 - Improving Health and Safety in the School Environment (4)

This elective course provides the opportunity to prepare nursing students for an active role in assessment of real and potential risks for illness or injury in a multi-cultural primary school setting. The course is designed to develop skills needed to partner with school administrators, teachers, and families to assess needs and implement health promotion activities that are mutually determined and aimed at supporting the physical and psychosocial health of elementary school students. Students' weekly work in assigned schools will be the link to connect community service to the core curriculum.
