The Environmental Health Nursing Education Collaborative is a project organized by the Boston University Superfund Research Program (BU SRP) and the Harvard School of Public Health. The goal of this collaboration is to contribute to the education and training of nurses by helping their faculty integrate environmental health into the nursing curriculum.
Nursing faculty interested in incorporating environmental health into their courses can choose to have a lecture given by an environmental health expert, utilize the Pediatric Environmental Health Toolkit developed by Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility (GBPSR), work with BU SRP and Harvard SPH staff to develop a nursing project with an EH theme, or use one of the environmental health case studies for nurses in their class.
In addition to helping nursing faculty integrate environmental health into the nursing curriculum we have also compiled numerous web resources for nurses. These resources include online continuing education opportunities, environmental health nursing publications, and a list of useful online Environmental Health Resources.
The Boston University Superfund Research Program and the Harvard-NIEHS Center for Environmental Health are both supported with funding from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
