In order to be successful in promoting health for patients and populations across the life span, nurse practitioners need to develop and utilize key skills related to leadership, collaboration, and innovation. Additionally, these skills are utilized within a conceptual framework that helps the nurse practitioner to visualize the interconnectedness of the individual to the multifactorial influences that surround him or her.

For this task, you will develop a health promotion plan for an individual that considers how personal contacts, the environment, the greater community, and policy influence the individual’s health. The health promotion plan should be written in such a way that a diverse healthcare team comprised of interprofessional and inexperienced people can easily understand the justifications for and interventions of the plan.
