New information will be integrated on health promotion in the learning disabled and the use of herbal medicine as it relates to health promotion. There will be new case studies and reflective practice activities to apply student's knowledge.  For nursing students as well as nurse practitioners, community health nurses, occupational health nurses, and school nurses.
