About the Session
Preparing the nursing workforce and other healthcare professionals to work collaboratively to improve a population’s health status is consistent with AONE strategic priorities and objectives, namely to partner with academic stakeholders to prepare nurses to practice in emerging models of true interprofessional care and engage with industry partners to drive healthcare transformation. Using key informant surveys, interviews and site visits of exemplar academic/practice programs, CCNA identified core components of successful educational models for nurses in population health. The first phase of the work identified core content and skills in population health across levels of nursing education, barriers and benefits to teaching them, teaching strategies, and methods of measuring nursing student competence. The second phase focused on identifying current and potential interprofessional practice models and methods of providing continuing education to the healthcare disciplines in population health.
