Nursing Training at the Seattle PPC
The purpose of the
PPC master's and post-master's level training program in nursing is to
develop expert leaders in the field of child health and children with
special health care needs (CSHCN) using the population of children and
families with chronic respiratory disease as a model.
Through planned and
supervised learning experiences, nursing trainees have opportunities to
become clinically proficient using the PPC model and facilitate the development
of leadership skills at various training sites.
Upon completion of
training, the student will be able to demonstrate acquired and applied
knowledge and skills in pulmonary nursing of CSHCN and their families
and be proficient in the core public health functions of assessment, policy
development, and assurance.
experiences are a mix of inpatient, outpatient, community- and school-based,
depending on the experiences and goals of the trainee.
For a description
of leadership training, see Goals and Objectives for
PPC Trainees and UW MCH Leadership Consortium.
