Public Health: Nursing Education and the COVID-19 Pandemic
Webinar Details & Objectives
For the past decade, leaders in health care have been talking about population health and its importance in improving the health of the nation. With the current COVID-19 pandemic, nurses response at the front lines, and the transition of nursing schools to distance learning, it is an opportunity to consider what we should be teaching nursing students to prepare them to work on the front lines in various capacities.
- Describe key nursing roles in pandemic containment, control, and management
- Identify population health knowledge and skills useful in nursing practice across the continuum in the face of a pandemic
