Welcome Michigan and Wisconsin Agencies, Students and Faculty!
A special welcome is extended to Michigan Nursing Students and Faculty. As neighboring states we share much more than weather! Nursing students in both states have been providing valuable projects for the populations they encounter throughout our states. With this new collaborative, Michigan will be joining our student projects database.
This website contains descriptions of projects completed by nursing students in community/public health nursing clinical. These descriptions are meant to help you develop student projects that will benefit students and public/community health agencies. By sharing details of your own projects you can help build a database that will help students and agencies build upon your experience. Thank you for participating!
What would you like to do?
We hope that you find this website useful to gain new ideas, offer insights to others and to improve the capacity of community/public health nurses to improve the health of populations.
Maintain a repository of community health nursing student projects to provide quality educational experiences & useful products for the benefit of students, faculty, preceptors and agencies.
• Develop & refine a repository that best serves to collect, store & share descriptions of nursing student projects in community health, based upon the Quad Council Competencies.
• Increase awareness and incorporate use of the Quad Council Competencies among students and practicing public health nurses.
• Evaluate and expand the range of student project descriptions so that all public health nursing competencies and all public health interventions are represented.

Students all over the State of Wisconsin and Michigan, as well as the nation as a whole, engage in community/public health nursing projects in collaboration with agencies. Significant contributions occur from this work to benefit communities. If you have not started your project yet, you can gather ideas for potential projects by reviewing descriptions of student projects.
This database provides a site to share descriptions of your good work with others and can help you apply your knowledge of the Public Health Wheel Interventions and the Quad Council Public Health Nurse Competencies to your project. The links on the left hand side of this page can be used to review projects by competency domain or type of public health intervention.
Thank you for your participation. By sharing details of your project you are helping to improve the health in communities across the state and nation, if not the world as these are available on the World Wide Web for others to learn from.
