Abstract

Nursing students frequently lack an understanding of public health services. Their clinical experiences may occur in home health agencies or community clinics, rather than public health departments. To address the recurring question of what public health nurses do, a Second Life public health office was implemented in the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh's online Accelerated Nursing Program. The authors describe how Second Life was integrated into a community nursing course.
