Agricultural safety and health is not frequently incorporated into basic baccalaureate nursing curriculum. A nursing professor with responsibilities in public health nursing education and laboratory experiences may have the autonomy to both teach this content and to provide experiential learning in this area. Exposure identification and control strategies for chemical, biological and physical hazards are only a few of the occupational issues encountered by nurses in practice. While some nursing students have an agricultural background, many do not. However, once they graduate they may take opportunities to work in rural communities. In clinics and other medical facilities, patients will present with a symptom of an injury or illness that resulted from an exposure on a family farm or production site. If the nurse knows to conduct an occupational and environmental history with that patient, the discovery of the etiology of the condition may be clearly illuminated.
Dr. Lisa Schiller, University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, School of Nursing and Health Sciences, is an example of a professor incorporating agricultural safety and health into basic nursing education.
