In order for you to be out in the community clinical environment…
1. In order for you to be out in the community clinical environment (your hometown) we would need an agreement with each and every place our students plan to attend signed by the location and by the University’s legal team. This can take weeks, even months. As you can see, it’s quite impossible to get you all out in the community working as community nurses. Hence, we use the assignments, readings, and videos to help facilitate your learning about what community nursing and population health is concerned with. Do you have any recommendations for meeting your clinical objectives in another manner?
