successful completion of this paper. Please
use the following categories as the first level headings on your paper. See
the documents in the APA category in Course Resources for assistance with APA
formatting.
·
[Introduction:] This beginning of your paper should catch the
reader’s attention with interesting facts about your community and should include the purpose statement of the paper.
This should be one paragraph. APA
states that you should not title this
as introduction; however, you are still expected to write a separate
introduction. The title of the paper should be repeated at the top of page two
and centered.
·
Community
Overview: Identify the community that you are
assessing by name and state and provide a general description of the community.
What is the general character of the community? Statistics should not be
included here. Your community should be the area you live or work in and should
include a residential area. It should be a large enough area to answer the
questions in the text. This should be one
paragraph.
·
Demographic
Data: Compile a range of demographic (population
description) data for your community by examining U.S. Census Bureau reports.
Using this data, describe your community. Compare your community data to state
or national data. A summary of this data should be no more than two paragraphs.
·
Epidemiological
Data: Compile and summarize a range of
epidemiological (illness, morbidity, and mortality) data for your community by
examining data from sources such as city or county health department reports,
County Health Rankings (countyhealthrankings.org), or the Centers for Disease
Control to describe priority health problems in your area. See the Webliography
for applicable sites to search. Compare your community to state or national
data. This comparison will help to identify a priority community health problem
specific to your community. A summary of this data should be no more than two paragraphs.
·
Windshield
Survey: Provide a summary of your observations from your first milestone. Make sure to
discuss observations related to your identified problem. This should be one to two paragraphs.
·
Problem
Diagnosis:
o Using
the assessment data, identify one
community health nursing problem that you consider to be a priority
concern.
o Relate
your choice to one of the Healthy People 2020
specific numbered objectives (not
just a goal). Healthy People
objectives are located within a topic area under the Objectives tab.
o Your
rationale should also include why this is a problem in your community and
factors that contribute to the problem. Avoid discussion of interventions in
this milestone.
o Include a discussion of your
problem with information from at least two scholarly sources (such as
professional journal articles).
(Review the documents in the APA category in
Doc Sharing for help in determining sources that are considered scholarly—hint,
.com websites are not considered scholarly sources). This should beno
more than three paragraphs.
·
Summary:
Summarize your community assessment and diagnosis findings and include a brief statement
about the problem and the major factors that contribute to this problem. This
information should be no more than two
paragraphs.
