Abstract

With increasing health care costs, public health agencies and other institutions have a critical need for master's-prepared nurses who can provide health care for common health problems of individuals and families but also assess, plan, intervene, and evaluate the needs of communities. This article describes the development of a nursing master's degree program to meet that need which combines the traditional roles of the nurse practitioner and the community health nurse. The program is based on the global concept of primary health care as defined by the World Health Organization, which includes more emphasis on economic, political, environmental, and social factors.
