This population health course prepares nursing and health professions students to lead and transform care interprofessionally, and across a variety of community practice settings. Students will explore Puerto Rico’s Health care system and its unique characteristics and challenges as a diverse US Island territory. Through collaboration with Puerto Rican nursing students and faculty, students will participate in bilingual community health education/outreach, and nursing workforce training in disaster preparation and response. These opportunities will better prepare students as civically-engaged global nurses in addressing the complex health needs within their local communities while also helping achieve global UN Sustainable Development Goals.
