NUR 22001 - Population Health: Culturally Safe Nursing Care of Individuals and Families within the Alaskan Indigenous Population


(4) This course focuses on the nurse’s role in community health from a meso- level view of the surrounding population. Through reflection and introspection, students will consider personal beliefs, inherent biases, emotions, and reactions to better understand themselves as an individual. Upon gaining beginning self-awareness, students will assess their local community and identify a population need. Utilizing the nursing judgment model, focus will be placed on health disparities among the Alaskan indigenous population, with specific consideration to burden of illness, disability, access to health, barriers to healthy lifestyle choices and quality of care. Prerequisite: Admission to the ADN Program, NUR 20000. Offered: Spring.
