Students in a NURS 4115 ROLE OF THE NURSE IN PUBLIC AND GLOBAL HEALTH course broaden their perspectives on health promotion and disease prevention as they investigate health concerns that transcend country borders, class, color, ethnicity, and culture. Students assess the nurse’s involvement in conserving and improving health among varied communities, as well as the nurse’s function in sickness prevention and health promotion, protection, and maintenance of specific populations. They also investigate epidemiological concepts and the socio-political issues that influence human health and well-being. Students do tasks that give practical application of information on current concerns such as infant mortality rates in the United States and overseas, infectious or communicable diseases, and the effects of global climate change on health, among others.

NURS 4115 Week 2 Discussion Task – Nurses Working to Improve the Socioeconomic Status of Underprivileged Citizens Through Government Action


Poverty’s impact on health is a problem that transcends national boundaries. The readings for this week addressed some of the political, economic, and ethical concerns that contribute to health inequalities in developed and poor nations. Furthermore, in this weekâ€TMs first media presentation, Dr. Mancuso and Dr. Huijer presented views on how to engage inside political institutions to effect beneficial changes in health care. Consider the role of nurses in meeting these needs and bringing about change.

Additional Useful Tips When Writing NURS 4115 ROLE OF THE NURSE IN PUBLIC AND GLOBAL HEALTH Nursing Assignments and Homeworks.


1.      The APA Format and the Writing Quality


Learn how to use APA format and practice using it effectively. It is utilized for the majority of your degree’s writing tasks. For APA paper templates, citation examples, and advice, go to the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, which may be found under the Resources option in LoudCloud. Points will be removed if the APA format is not used correctly or if the APA format is not used at all (if required).

Cite all information sources! Cite the source whenever possible. A citation is also required when paraphrasing.

It is better to use the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.


2.      Utilization of Direct Quotes


At the master’s level, I discourage the use of direct quotations in DQs and assignments and subtract points appropriately.

As master’s level students, you must be able to critically assess and comprehend material from journal articles and other sources. Simply repeating someone else’s words does not indicate comprehension or critical examination of the topic.

It is preferable to paraphrase and reference your sources.
