Domestic violence is recognized as a priority women's health issue. Despite its prevalence, the majority of accredited nursing schools in the United States has yet to adequately integrate violence assessment and intervention content and planned clinical experiences into their curriculum. Therefore, the author has developed a theoretically based one-day domestic violence immersion activity to enhance the teaching of domestic violence assessment and intervention skills to baccalaureate nursing students.
