NOW FOR AN ORIGINAL PAPER ASSIGNMENT:Assignment: Graduates Population Health

In population­focused nursing, the aggregate, community, or population is the unit of  care. Emphasis is placed on health promotion and disease prevention. Because  population­focused care is fundamental to nursing practice, and because a baccalaureate  degree in nursing is the recommended minimal educational credential for population­  focused care, baccalaureate programs prepare graduates for population health as well as  clinical prevention (AACN, 1998; American Public Health Association, 1996; Quad  Council of Public Health Nursing Organizations, 2004). Population­focused nursing  involves identifying determinants of health, prioritizing primary prevention when  possible, actively identifying and reaching out to those who might benefit from a service,  and using available resources to assure best overall improvement in the health of the  population (American Nurses Association, 2007). For instance, population­focused  interventions involve reaching an appropriate level of herd immunity in the community  and ensuring that information about appropriate screenings reach the entire population,  not just those who choose to come to healthcare facilities. Collaboration with other  healthcare professionals and populations is necessary to promote conditions and healthy  behaviors that improve population health.

The baccalaureate program prepares the graduate to:

1.  Assess protective and predictive factors, including genetics, which influence the  health of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations.

2.  Conduct a health history, including environmental exposure and a family history  that recognizes genetic risks, to identify current and future health problems.

3.  Assess health/illness beliefs, values, attitudes, and practices of individuals,  families, groups, communities, and populations.

4.  Use behavioral change techniques to promote health and manage illness.

5.  Use evidence­based practices to guide health teaching, health counseling,  screening, outreach, disease and outbreak investigation, referral, and follow­up  throughout the lifespan.

6.  Use information and communication technologies in preventive care.

7.  Collaborate with other healthcare professionals and patients to provide spiritually  and culturally appropriate health promotion and disease and injury prevention  interventions.
