Subaward 2016-2017: Resources and Services for Community Health Nursing Clinics Across the State of Nevada

To support community health nurses across the State of Nevada by providing instruction and promotion of freely available health information with a focus on National Library of Medicine (NLM) resources. Provide instruction and support for evidence-based public health practice through in-person and online instruction. This project will promote access to quality information and provide greater support for rural care providers in Nevada. Providing health services in remote areas is always a challenge. Public Health Nursing is provided through the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health to Nevada's ten frontier and rural counties. In addition to essential services such as immunizations, they also serve as school nurses in school districts without a school nurse. Their area of responsibility is over 96,000 square miles and their nurses' average 1,000 miles per month of traveling through the rural counties to support the health and wellness of Nevadans.
