Nursing in A Global Community
This course introduces students to a global perspective of health care issues and how those issues transcend national borders, class, race, ethnicity, and culture. An overview of strategies that promote the health of nations will be discussed, from health threats and public health issues specific to regions of the world to chronic disease prevention and management in nations worldwide. Students will develop a deeper understanding of cultural differences and an enhanced awareness of global inequities in health care delivery. Upon completion of this course, students will be familiar with the activities of major international health care organizations, both publically and privately funded, governmental and non-governmental, and understand the impact of those activities on global health and wellness.
