Order Description
We often consider how community health nurses can support vulnerable populations. For this self-reflection, consider what unique assets or perspectives vulnerable populations can provide to nurses. Reflect on how you, as a professional nurse, hope to improve individual and social factors that contribute to vulnerability in populations. What public policies may affect these vulnerable populations?
