Education Advocacy & Policy

The Education Committee supports advocacy activities to promote and advance the educational aspects of community health nursing/ public health nursing. Additionally, we support policy in collaboration with the Policy committee when policy impacts educational factors for community health nursing.

In 2019, the Education Committee completed a thorough review of "AACN’s Public Health: Recommended Baccalaureate Competencies and Curricular Guidelines for Public Health Nursing: A supplement to the baccalaureate education for professional nursing practice" (2013).
