As a Community Health Nurse, you are assigned to develop a health literacy program at the Yvonne Learning Center to promote health literacy in a low-income urban area. This program will focus on children ages 3-7 years old, 9-12 years old and 14 to 18 years old .

You will provide basic health information and services about health and teach the children about their bodies and how having a positive attitude and good behaviors influence their health in general.

The goal of information literacy is to promote self-learning and the ability to be self-sufficient.
