NR 443 Assignment Intervention and Evaluation
NR 443 Assignment Intervention and Evaluation
The purpose of this PowerPoint presentation is to provide an
opportunity to develop a community health nursing intervention and evaluation
plan for a community health problem that you identified in your community
(described in Milestone 2: Vulnerable Population Assessment). You will apply
the components of the nursing process to assist this vulnerable population and
develop a proposal that could be presented to community leaders.
This assignment enables the student to meet the following
CO1: Apply principles of nursing theory to the public health
system by analyzing determinants of health and the public health intervention
wheel. (PO 1)
CO3: Plan prevention and population-focused interventions
for vulnerable populations using professional clinical judgment and evidence-based
practice. (PO 4, 8)
CO4: Evaluate the delivery of care for individuals,
families, aggregates, and communities based on theories and principles of
nursing and related disciplines. (PO 1)
Submit your PowerPoint presentation by 11:59 p.m. MT Sunday
by the end of Week 6.
This assignment is worth a total of 225 points.
You are a community public health nurse (C/PHN) working with
the vulnerable population you identified in Milestone 2. You will choose a
specific community health role that would serve this population. You have
analyzed the data collected from your windshield survey and vulnerable
population assignments (the first two milestones) and identified one community
health problem that a nurse can impact. Now, review the scholarly literature or
scholarly websites listed below and identify one specific evidence-based
nursing intervention that has the potential to improve the health of this
group. Then develop a proposal to implement this intervention and a plan to
evaluate the outcomes of this intervention. Create a PowerPoint that you could
use to present to an organization in your community to request approval for
funding and support for this intervention. (You are not required to implement
the intervention or present your PowerPoint, though you may want to consider
implementing your project in the future).
