COLLEGE OF NEW ROCHELLE TO HOST TRAVELING
INITIATIVE AT DC-37 CAMPUS
Healthy Campus 2010
Now in its 19th Consecutive Year
NEW ROCHELLE, NY, March 24, 2006 -- Healthy Campus
2010, a successful collaboration between the Health Services Office and
the School of Nursing (SON) at The College of New Rochelle (CNR), will
be held on:
Wednesday, April 12, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.
DC-37 Union Headquarters, 125 Barclay Street (Manhattan)
PATH trains, IRT 1/9 and R (Cortland Street), IND A, C, E or K
CNR nursing students will offer presentations on health promotion
topics to union employees. Some of the topics will include breast
cancer, diabetes, hypertension, nutrition, and stress management.
The objective of Healthy Campus 2010 is to educate individuals in the
CNR community, and the local communities they serve, about how to
increase their quality of life through health programs and teach them
how to manage health care issues. Healthy Campus 2010 has allowed the
College to: 1) provide students in the School of Nursing with a vehicle
for developing and using their teaching skills in health education and
disease prevention, and 2) to address specific health issues and needs
of the CNR community across its six campuses
Senior nursing students assess the health needs of the community
through questionnaires, discussion groups, and demographic data.
The findings parallel the leading indicators described in Healthy
People 2010, the national health initiative led by the U.S. Department
of Health and Human Services, such as obesity, cardiovascular disease,
smoking, exercise and mental health.
The next step is to use health screening and education to identify
high- and low-risk behaviors and analyze lifestyle patterns that may
contribute to these behaviors. CNR nursing students then develop
and implement strategies to teach members of the community how to
prevent and/or manage these health issues.
in 1976, the School of Nursing at CNR is widely recognized for
innovation and excellence in programming that is responsive to the
public’s changing health needs. The School offers six programs: a
traditional four-year undergraduate program leading to a bachelor of
science in nursing; a traditional and an accelerated program of study
for RNs seeking a B.S.N.; an accelerated B.S.N. program for those
holding degrees in other fields; an accelerated RN to M.S. program; and
an M.S. degree program with tracks in holistic nursing, acute care
nurse practitioner, family nurse practitioner, health care management,
and in the Nurse Educator role. Post master’s programs are
available in all acute care tracks, HIV/AIDS, and in Palliative
Care. CNR graduates are prepared to assume beginning leadership
roles and facilitate change to improve the quality of client care in
the health care system for diverse and multicultural populations.
