Final Course Reflection
Consider how the three competencies of this course might directly apply to your life and work environment when answering the questions below.
Â· Competency 1: Analyze health policy, politics, and global issues that affect public health nursing.
Â· Competency 2: Use health promotion techniques to manage infectious and communicable disease in populations.
Â· Competency 3: Apply models and processes to promote public health.
Think of a state-level health program that impacts your community. How could a cut in funding for that program impact your role as a nurse in your own work environment? Provide an example, either within your work environment or in society-at-large, of when politics and policy impacted a health care organization.
