This poster presentation is suitable for clinicians and educators. Learner objectives include (1) Integrating Internet and information technology into learning community health nursing theory. (2) Describing how to use Healthy People 2010 as a tool in learning community health nursing. Consumers and health care providers increasingly use the Internet to learn about and keep abreast of health care issues. Nurses need to be able to use the Internet and information technology in professional practice and as tools to help clients. This poster presentation describes the portfolio project developed in an online community health nursing theory course for baccalaureate and master level nursing students. Students use the Internet and information technology to study the United States, a diverse community aggregate, with subsystems and suprasystems. Students apply community health nursing knowledge and skills to the United States community, learn about Healthy People 2010 and its role in the nation’s health, and participate in peer coaching and review. Healthy People 2010, the agenda for the Nation’s health, contains 467 Objectives organized into 28 Focus Areas and is accessible via Internet. Each student builds a portfolio for one selected objective. The portfolio consists of analysis of the objective and why it is a public health issue; discussion of related biophysical, behavioral, social, psychological, physical, and health care systems dimensions; biostatistics; pertinent research and current events; levels of prevention; and evaluation of organizational initiatives addressing the objective. Students develop skills in peer coaching, teamwork, and critiquing peers’ work using an on-line format. Faculty provide feedback on portfolios periodically throughout the semester. The strengths of using the portfolio format and the challenges of integrating this strategy within online instruction will be summarized.
