NUR 326 - Dominican Republic Community Nursing Partnership I Clinical


Over two or three semesters, students will engage in partnership with an international community. This sequence of courses incorporates the concepts of partnership building, risk identification, and health promotion within a community-based context. Students will collaborate with community partners to develop an understanding of both short and long term needs of the community. Problem posing and problem solving will come from the community. Students will engage in ongoing community assessment, support communities in developing long term interventions/approaches, and engage in evaluation of community level practice. Students will identify individuals and families within their communities who would benefit from individual and family based nursing assessment, planning, intervention, and evaluation. Students will work with health care providers in these communities to assess the need for and to augment the services available. Students will engage in both formative and summative evaluation over the course of their interaction with the community. Students will consider issues of termination and continuation as they work with individuals, families, fellow students, and community partners over a two-year period. Advancing students will mentor entering students in the roles of community partner, advocate, and care provider.
