Community Teaching Plan: Teaching Experience Paper Grand Canyon University: NRS-427V

For my community teaching experience I chose to address a widespread need in my local and surrounding communities. This need is for more education regarding birth control options available for the young adult teenage population. The school districts in my county only require that sexual education be done once in the ninth grade and this class goes over the basics from menarche to sexual reproduction. However they only briefly describe birth control methods alluding to more of an abstinence stance. This brief description leaves many not understanding the way each type of birth control works allowing teens to incorrectly use each method, if they even use one at all. I will discuss my teaching plan and experience in the following paragraphs.

Epidemiological Rationale
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) an unintended pregnancy is on that is either unwanted or mistimed which usually result from not using contraception or inconsistent or incorrect use of effective contraceptive methods. Among women aged 19 years and younger, more than 4 out of 5 pregnancies were unintended. The proportion of pregnancies that were unintended was highest among teenagers younger than age 15 years, at 98%. (CDC, 2012) With this education being taught in school at an age where students are already 14 or 15 years old we are doing a huge disservice to these teenagers. They are not being taught how to properly protect themselves from both pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases before they become sexually active. Even with a decline in teenage pregnancy the United States still has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the developed world. Approximately 410,000 teenagers become pregnant each year. Since so many teenagers lack accurate knowledge about…...

Community Teaching Plan

...Introduction This paper is our proposed plan for teaching those of all ages about obesity; its detrimental effects on the body, short and long term, and how to avoid associated problems, using a healthy varied eating plan and incorporating a daily exercise schedule. The health risks of obesity are the same for all people and the interventions for weight loss are also the same. These interventions are basic, eat healthy and be active. But educating communities and enabling them to make these changes are not basic tasks in themselves. It takes knowledge, planning, creativity and time to ensure that this teaching is effective. Proposed Community Teaching What is obesity? “Obesity is defined as an abnormal increase of fat in the subcutaneous connective tissue. This means that there are a lot of fat cells gathered in the tissue under the skin. Eating greater amounts of food than the body can use for energy causes this deposition ("Obesitynursing care," 2012). Why? And what is it related to: • Weight 20% higher than optimum body weight • Observed/reported eating patterns that are dysfunctional, food eaten is more than body requirements • Social/economic status • Psychosocial factors Physical /mental health problems associated with Obesity • Metabolic syndrome, this is a combination of conditions that includes: high cholesterol, high blood glucose levels, high blood pressure, and central obesity. • Coronary heart disease, the risk factors are increased with......

...NSR-427V-O104 Community Teaching Experience Introduction and Epidemiological Rationale Based off the evaluation of Green County, Wisconsin and the interview that took place with Sherri Holmes, who is a registered nurse from Wisconsin, the lesson plan chosen is going to be done on underage drinking and the rate of binge drinking experienced by Wisconsin High School students. The proposed group to teach to is high school students. In 2007, 32% of Wisconsin high school students reported binge use of alcohol, while the prevalence of binge declined among high school students nationally from 1997 to 2007, there was no consistent decline in Wisconsin (Wisconsin Department of Health Services, 2008). As a whole Wisconsin has higher rates compared to the United States for underage drinking for youth ages 12 to 20 (Wisconsin Department of Health Services, 2008). In 2007 Wisconsin had the third highest rate of binge drinking (Wisconsin Epidemiology Profile on Alcohol and Consumption, 2008). According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (2014) the state has the highest rate of drunk driving and there were more than 40,000 convictions for drunk driving in 2013, and in 2009 the number of alcohol related crashes resulting in fatalities were 238 people and injured 4,000 people. Out of all of the fatal traffic accidents in 2009 for Wisconsin, 45 percent of them were alcohol related and 40 percent of all fatal motorcycle crashes were also alcohol-related as well......

Community Teaching Plan: Teaching Experience

...Community Teaching Plan: Teaching Experience Summary of Teaching Plan The idea of teaching a community about possible attacks on our country was one thought, but actually giving them the knowledge of what the various ways to, ultimately, defend themselves was a much greater cause. The possibilities that we may face a biological terrorist attack is quite real. We have seen the horrors of 9-11, we are aware of the wars and hatred; which gives us as human beings all the more reason to learn about these tactics. This presentation was probably the toughest thing I’ve ever had to do. Public speaking isn’t my strongest trait; however, I believed this was my nursing duties to give complete strangers the knowledge that might save their lives one day. Power point presentations are always a helpful tool when explaining a subject that those may not know, they seemed to be much more intuitive and very interested during the whole time the presentation took place (Nursing Planet, 2013). Well, in my opinion, when any one is explaining the probability and various ways that I may need this knowledge to someday defend and save not only my own life but also the people around me I would be pretty interested myself. The total time to present and explain and discuss the presentation was just over twenty minutes. When we finished, the time laps felt much quicker. Perhaps because this was also an interesting topic for myself. All in all, I felt very confident my ability to teach and give specific...

Community Teaching Work Plan

...Community Teaching Work Plan Concepts in Community and Public Health Community Teaching Work Plan Proposed Community Teaching A disaster is described as an event that causes great damage and loss of life. A disaster can be an earthquake, flood, fire, explosion, hurricane, or any event that is catastrophic to infrastructure and claims lives. Disasters affect the lives of thousands of people every year. Being prepared for a disaster can reduce fear and anxiety. Being prepared can also help to decrease the amount of losses that can occur. Individuals and families need to know what to do in the event of a disaster like a hurricane ("FEMA," “n.d”). Communities that consist of military bases face different risks related to disasters. They are at increased risk for nuclear accidents and acts of terrorism. For these reasons, disaster preparedness for the families of Hampton Roads Virginia would be necessary for the community health care nurse to provide. Epidemiological Rational for Topic The area of Hampton Road is located on the eastern coast of Virginia. Being a coastal area, Hampton Roads is vulnerable to strong storms and hurricanes. Hampton Roads is one of the top areas in the country at risk for storm surges resulting from a category 5 hurricane. A Category 5 hurricane could cause $39 billion worth of damage to homes and surrounding areas in Hampton Roads ("Hurricanes and......

Community Teaching Plan

...Community Teaching Plan: Teaching Experience Paper Gayatri Gajaria NRS 427V Grand Canyon University December 22, 2014 Community Teaching Plan: Teaching Experience Paper For this assignment, I chose my community in city of Montclair, CA. The teaching was done at Montclair Christian Church. The target audience for this teaching plan was parents of infants, pregnant women, and the topic I addressed was Fall Prevention. Falls occurs most frequently in infants when they are trying to explore their environment and can lead to head injury and many fatalities. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries for all children ages 0 to 19. Every day, approximately 8,000 children are treated in U.S. emergency rooms for fall-related injuries. This adds up to almost 2.8 million children each year” (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,2012). Falls can be prevented and many fatalities can be avoided. This is the epidemiological rationale for choosing this topic. Infant falls can be traumatizing for the parents and the infants. There are many ways parents can protect their infants from falling. Most of the time, majority of the falls occur at home. They result from infants falling from bed, sofa, chairs, stairs; changing tables etc. When infants fall they can get injured easily. “Minor head trauma is frequent among infants and leads to numerous visits to emergency departments for neurological assessment to......

...Community Teaching Plan: Teaching Experience Paper Rebecca Byrd Grand Canyon University NRS-427V March 20, 2015 Jen Costello Community Teaching Plan: Teaching Experience Paper Community health nurses have the distinctive ability and knowledge to provide teaching on various health topics within the community. For this teaching experience, this writer chose a home health center which allowed this writer to gather a group of patients 65 years and older, who have been diagnosed with CHF and teach them about heart failure management and how to prevent hospital readmissions. Congestive heart failure is an illness that effects millions each year and with proper management, individuals can still lead a productive life. Prior to the teaching presentation, a community teaching work plan proposal was developed which helped create an outline for the teaching lesson. This paper will review the teaching plan, the epidemiological rational related to CHF, evaluate the teaching experience, how the community responded, and what the strengths of the teaching plan were and areas that need improvement. Summary of teaching plan Teaching about congestive heart failure management and how to prevent returning to the hospital for complications related to CHF, is an important topic to discuss and educate the community about, especially the elderly. The teaching plan developed by this writer estimated the teaching time to last 30 minutes and would take place at Victory Home Care. Between...

In this presentation the school nurse will learn how to calculate and be able to refer those students that are affected or in danger of becoming obese, to a physician for help, further testing, assessments and recommendations or even treatment. As we all know obesity is an epidemic Problem. It is a problem not only here in the United States but also all through out the world. The problem is so terrible that even in third world countries that are poor there is an obesity problem. Why is there such a problem? There are many issues or factors that are the cause for obesity. It can be a decrease in physical activity. Another factor is having a sedentary lifestyle, which means we do not have normal physical activity. Basically, at this time our jobs and lifestyles have us sitting around for long periods of time with out or with very little physical activity. This is terrible for our health because we basically do not burn any calories or use any energy. We over eat and do nothing to burn those meals. There is also the issue of low cost food that is not very nutritious actually it is incredibly unhealthy. The cost of healthy food is higher, which in some way is what...
