Population health as a framework for forensic nursing curriculum

J Forensic Nurs. 2006 Spring;2(1):33-41. doi: 10.1111/j.1939-3938.2006.tb00051.x.


The American Association for the Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has recommended that master's level graduate programs prepare nurses as generalists. There is, however, a gap in the educational ladder at the master's level when current master's clinical nurse specialist (CNP) and nurse practitioner (NP) programs are reconfigured as doctoral programs. To fill this gap, a curriculum model using population health as a framework is proposed.
