Core Functions of Public Health (graded)
Let’s start with a broad overview of public health nursing. The
three core functions of public health are assessment, assurance, and policy
development (Nies & McEwen, 2015, p. 6).

Describe
one of these core public health functions.
Discuss
how this core function relates to one intervention from the Public Health
Intervention Wheel (Nies & McEwen, 2015, pp. 14–15).

Determinants of Health (graded)
What makes some healthy and others ill? Healthy People 2020
identifies five determinants of health that influence the
health of individuals and populations. Healthy People 2020
describes them as “A range of personal, social, economic, and
environmental factors that influence health status are known as determinants of
health” (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2014, About
Determinants of Health, para. 1). Determinants fall into five categories
including: (a) policy making, (b) social factors, (c) health services, (d)
individual behavior, and (e) biology and genetics.

on each determinant to read about all of the determinants.
Choose
one of the five determinants. In your posting, describe this determinant
and its importance.

Windshield Survey (graded)
In this discussion thread, you will view a windshield survey video
of a community called Iron Ridge to practice performing part of a windshield
survey. Review the categories and questions in Box 6-2 on page 98 of your text
(Nies & McEwen, 2015).

Demographic and Epidemiological Assessment
(graded)
For this post, you will collect assessment data about your city or
county. This post will include information about demographics (general
characteristics) and epidemiological data (disease or health behavior rates) of
your community. This data collection will help with two sections of your Week 4
Milestone 2 assignment.

Demographic
data:Go online to the U.S. Census Bureau at.census.gov/”>http://quickfacts.census.gov/. Obtain information about
the demographic characteristics of the population for your city or county
of residence. You may have to look at county data if your city is not
listed. Collect a range of demographic data about age, ethnicity, poverty
levels, housing, and education.
Epidemiological
data:Go to your city or county health department
website (search the Internet) or County Health Rankings (.countyhealthrankings.org/”>http://www.countyhealthrankings.org/) to discuss
epidemiological data about your area. Identify several priority health
concerns for your area.

Caring for Vulnerable Populations (graded)
This week, you are learning about many different vulnerable
populations. Choose one vulnerable population.

Briefly
describe this vulnerable population.

several risk factors that may impact health outcomes for this group.
Describe
two priorities for community health nurses working with this population.

Assuring Resources for the Vulnerable (graded)
Review the Week 3 Case Study that may be found in Doc Sharing.
Assurance is one of the three core functions of public health.
Find a resource in your community (other than WIC) that could assist Mary
during her pregnancy. Start by searching the Internet for your local health
department’s website. What services do they provide for pregnant women or those
with mental health concerns? What about your local welfare office? Do they
provide prenatal or mental health services? Are there any service
organizations, crisis pregnancy centers, or churches providing help for pregnant
women or those experiencing mental health concerns?

Briefly
describe the types of services that you found.
Choose
one agency and assess this agency in terms of the 4 As. Is it accessible,
acceptable, affordable, or available for Mary or other pregnant women that
you case-manage?

Concerns for the School Nurse (graded)
As the school nurse role evolves, there are increasingly more
health concerns for the school nurse. Does the locale make a difference in the
problems, or are health problems in children and adolescents universal? In some
inner-city areas, violence is a prevalent issue. What do you think are the
biggest problems in your areas?

dq 2

Healthy People Objectives for Community Settings (graded)
The federal government developed Healthy People as a set of
national health objectives that are revised every 10 years. These objectives
are very specific in order to guide and measure our nation’s progress related
to public health.
