The Health Education Nurse educates patients about behaviors and practices that promote improved wellness, health status, and health outcomes. They develop and implement individualized strategies utilizing different teaching modalities and care plans. The Health Education Nurse teaches patients about their diagnoses, disease processes, and about all necessary tests, treatments, or procedures. They provide direct individualized teaching and develop a link between the patient, caregiver, community, and other healthcare professionals. The Health Education Nurse works one on one with patients or with families/caregivers to ensure readiness for discharge through teaching and preparation. They help patients to navigate the complex health care systems. The goal is to enable discharged patients to manage their health with providers in the community thereby preventing unnecessary returns to the hospital. They may be required to participate in community Health Education events. Health Education Nurses collect, analyze, and share data that is used to support ongoing performance improvement.
