Resources for Educators

ANHE Curriculum Recommendations – The ANHE Education Work Group has created recommendations for ADN, Baccalaureate, RN-BSN, and graduate nursing curricula.


Environmental Health in Nursing – Free e-textbook. Peer-reviewed and written by nurses. This textbook is an excellent resource whether you are just learning about environmental health or have more advanced knowledge. We are already working on the second edition.

If you’d like to author a chapter please contact Katie Huffling at or 240-753-3729.





More Resources for Educators:

Incorporating Environmental Health and Climate Change into a Concept-Based Nursing Curriculum

Integration of EH and CC into the CBC for Google Doc

This project by ANHE’s Education Workgroup was designed to find areas of insertion of EH in concept-based nursing curriculum so that our graduates are prepared to incorporate EH into their practice as they care for their patients, families, and communities and work within their full scope of practice. There are many resources including a free online text, webinars, videos, and assignments that faculty can utilize in the classroom and clinical settings. Several of the webinars have contact hours (free!) for faculty and students.
