Program Overview
This talk will build in the Framework for 21st Century School Nursing PracticeTM to explore components of Community Public Health and Leadership. It will include discussions of Healthy Communities, Social Determinants of Health, Health Equity, Health Education, and Population Health as these concepts apply to the ever-evolving role of the school nurse. It will explore the role of the school nurse in developing healthy communities and working toward systems level change. Drawing on the speakers’ decades of working with communities on health issues, it will explore the value of these approaches for school nurses, and successes and struggles school nurses may experience as they engage in community collaboration. The speaker will share examples of roles school nurses who work in elementary through high school education and in rural and urban environments may play in community partnerships and collaboration.
