This comparison will focus on how the US, Scotland, and England apply community health concepts to promote and restore health in the community settings. Additionally understanding and focus related to the history of nursing and differences in nursing roles outside of the US will be included.
This course provides an immersion experience creating opportunity for a comparative analysis of evidence-based practices of health care prevention, diagnosis, and delivery with a specific focus on the role of nursing in the community.
