Author information

  • 1VA Sierra Nevada Health Care System, Reno, USA.


The updated American Nurses Association Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice's 16th standard delineates that the practice of RNs be environmentally healthy. This makes explicit the need to incorporate learning activities about environmental health into nursing education courses. The authors describe a simple yet very rewarding undergraduate educational intervention that helped nursing students explore environmental health concepts and related nursing implications.
