Reflect upon the nurseâ€™s role in health promotion that incorporates the significance of service learning.
Students struggle with the terminology of â€œservice learningâ€. Service learning is learning/educational activities that benefit others and the community. Such as health fairs, educational health announcements, wellness programs, health services, prevention education, etcâ€¦ Service learning for this assignment is learning activities for a population of people within the simulation of your choice that is paired with structured preparation from a nurseâ€™s point of view.
