This Webinar introduces a new supplement to the AACN undergraduate essentials that gives practical suggestions for integrating population health into the undergraduate nursing curriculum. Nursing graduates will need population health skills to support the new care delivery initiatives described in the Affordable Care Act. A case study that describes one successful example of population health integration into an undergraduate program will be presented.
