Yakima-Nursing-Elder-Presentation

The Yakima Well Elder assignment  provides the beginning nursing student exposure to the concept of health and wellness. Students develop a therapeutic relationship with a Well Elder in a community setting. They conduct multiple interviews and explore home safety, functional health patterns (Marjory Gordon’s framework) and a functional health assessment. The goal is to identify wellness while implementing holistic health promotion/risk reduction strategies focused on primary prevention.  The assignment culminates in a poster presentation that reflects the students’ findings and is given to the Yakima J1 cohort.
