Public Health Nursing Assessment

Performing a public health nursing assessment is a critical first step in determining health needs and appropriate interventions to meet them. For this assignment you perform a public health nursing assessment using the Public Health Nursing Tool (PHNAT), complete an assessment on a selected population. You are free to use your setting/population of interest discussed in Topic 3 DQ1 or choose another population of interest.

Using the assessment framework provided by the PHNAT, develop a 1,250-1,500 report summarizing your assessment findings and identifying the public health needs for your selected population. Your summary should include the following:

  1. Resources to identify and engage stakeholders, define your diverse community
  2. Collection and analysis of data regarding diverse community health issues
  3. Summary of how the documentation of the above could be disseminated to the community and its stakeholders

Consider the importance of preparing and providing quality care to the diverse groups within your community. Within your summary, include how you would plan improvement strategies to include a Healthy People 2020 initiative. Lastly, include steps for implementation of the improvement plans and specifics guiding an evaluation of the plan.
