Abstract:
Schools of Nursing need to respond to changing paradigms for nursing practice and community health care. They can support community and public health nurses (CHNs) to adapt to the paradigm shifts by providing educational offerings for practicing CHNs. By preparing themselves for these educational activities, educators in turn will keep themselves current and better prepared to provide relevant education to student nurses. A comprehensive national research program of study about community health nursing (CHN) produced results relevant to Nursing Educators. Responses from 6,700CHNs to a questionnaire in addition to results from 23 focus groups held in 6 geographic regions in Canada indicated the need for of nursing education programs to be creative and innovative. A key recommendation was that, employers, policy-makers and provincial authorities partner with educators in Masters of Public Health Programs and Schools of Nursing to: ensure that undergraduate curricula are relevant to community health nursing practice; improve access to evidence and continuing education and make funding for community and public health leadership and management development available. The presentation will explore the results that led to these recommendation and the implications for Schools of Nursing.
