The Role of the RN in Public Health
Original Presentation: March 30, 2021
The intent of the presentation is to create an awareness of the distinct, yet diverse role that public health nurses play in our healthcare system. The presentation provides a summary of the foundations of public health and public health nursing practice and highlights the guiding principles, beliefs, and values of the public health nursing profession. Stories and narratives from registered nurses actively working in the profession are used throughout the presentation to help illustrate the varied roles that together make up the essence of public health nursing.
