Week 1: Creating a Foundation
This week you will be creating a foundation of knowledge regarding public and population health. You will review public and population health and the role of nursing in the provision of interventions to promote health, protect health, and reduce risk in populations and individuals. With the wealth of vital public health information and resources available, we will be creating an annotated resource guide for you to reference as you work on assignments throughout the course.

Let’s get started.
