Identify and describe one nursing intervention focused on health promotion that the CHN could implement in the community setting identified. Support this health promotion intervention with at least one peer-reviewed journal article and cite your source (Author[s], year) in the body of your paper. Include the full APA reference for the article(s) in the reference page. Describe in detail whom (i.e. people, organizations, community members) the nurse could collaborate with in order to implement this intervention.

Professional Nursing Organization

Describe a professional organization for this CHN role (two paragraphs). Search the text, your article, or the Internet for one professional organization that supports nurses in this CHN role. Provide a detailed description of this organization in your own words. If you can’t find an organization specific to this group, search the American Nurses Association website for information on this setting. Cite the organization in the body of the text with (Organization Name, year), and include a complete reference on the reference page. Describe one professional issue that this organization is addressing related to this role.

Summary

End with a summary and conclusion (one paragraph). In one well-developed paragraph, summarize important points from the body of your paper including the CHN role and setting you identified, the nurses’ roles in that setting, the professional organization, and the health promotion intervention you discussed. End with a concluding statement.

No matter how much space remains on the page, the references always start on a separate page (insert a page break after the conclusion so that the references will start on a new page).

References

Type your references in alphabetical order here using the hanging indents set up here. Include all references cited in your paper. This must include one scholarly peer-reviewed journal article that was discussed above. Also reference the professional organization you discussed (a URL link is not sufficient) and the text if you discussed it above. See your APA Manual and the resources in your APA folder in Course Resources for reference formatting.
