Objectives Describe community health nursing practices that have been adapted to classroom or clinical activities in undergraduate nursing program. Evaluate usefulness of classroom and clinical activities that can be utilized in community health nursing. Create classroom or clinical active learning strategies to operationalize community health nursing concepts.

Cathy has clinical expertise in tertiary level of prevention with inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation settings. As a board member of a seven county chapter of the Iowa Head Injury Association, she focused on community reintegration of individuals with brain injury. She also facilitated support groups for individuals and family members following brain injury and spinal cord injury. Cathy and Sharon Guthrie redesigned and taught a population-based senior level nursing course. Within this course Cathy collaborated with the county public health department and a county asthma reduction coalition to start an in-home education program for children and teenagers with asthma. BSN students provided the education. Cathy was inspired by The Educated Citizen and Public Health: A Consensus Report on Public Health and Undergraduate Education (2006), a call to introduce all undergraduate students to public health education. She created a public health course (Cities, Sewers and Shots) for freshmen students not majoring in health care so that more college graduates would understand how health is shaped by their social and physical environment and how they need to use this information as an educated voter, employee, and consumer. Other professional interests include evidence based nursing practice and quality and safety in nursing education. [Cathy's other events] Sharon is an Assistant Professor with experience teaching undergraduate population-based nursing course and graduate level courses related to professional role and skill development, health promotion and disease prevention, health advocacy, and population-based assessment, policy development, and assurance of programs. Her background and experience as a pediatric staff nurse, pediatric nurse practitioner and nationally certified school nurse provide the foundation for her expertise. She has served in leadership roles for the Iowa School Nurse Organization, Iowa Association of Nurse Practitioners, Iowa Nurses Association, and Midwest Dairy Health and Wellness Advisory Council. She has served as a member on several National Association of School Nurse task forces, was chair of the 2005 Healthy Children’s Task Force in Iowa, and appointed as a Commissioner for Lt. Governor Patty Judge’s Commission on Wellness and Healthy Living. Sharon has co-taught a population-based senior level nursing course at Mount Mercy University for several years and developed the Medication Reconciliation Simulation experience. The Medical Reconciliation Simulation is an innovative and inexpensive learning experience to expose students to the unique community health setting of a client’s home and the critical need to reconcile client medications at various and numerous points in the care of clients. Sharon’s areas on interest include school nursing documentation, standardized nursing languages, population-based care, health promotion and disease prevention in populations, innovation, informatics, and use of technology in health care.
