Public health nursing education changing with the times


MADISON, Wis. - Oct. 27, 2005 - As public health nursing practice changes to be more population-focused, academic institutions are challenged to keep up with educational requirements. A recent survey of 424 public health nurses revealed the need for more clinical public health experiences and population-focused practice content for undergraduate students. Recommendations for improving the education of graduate students included making graduate programs more accessible and flexible and supported by their employers. Access to continuing education should also be improved.
