This book presents the comprehensive view of advanced community health nursing practice needed in order for nurses to provide population-focused care. The content was developed to be useful to students preparing as advanced practice nurses in community health, public health, primary care, occupational health, school health, and home health care. The depth of the material provides a valuable resource for nurses practicing in health departments, community health services, primary care centers, health promotion programs, home health care agencies, managed care organizations, and many other community health agencies.
Six parts provide organization for the content areas. Part I provides an introduction along with the foundations and context of advanced community health nursing practice. Part II consists of seven chapters about the community assessment process in the depth required for advanced practice. Part III offers in-depth material about program planning, including developing budgets. Program implementation is covered in Part IV Part V on program evaluation includes examples from existing community health nursing programs. The last part of the book brings together material on creating a practice environment for research utilization and using research in practice.
My heartfelt appreciation goes to Roberta Brundege, Judy Glover, Yvonne Johnston, Joyce Reilly, Margaret Young, and Grace Wong for their able assistance during the preparation of the manuscript. Thanks also to the external reviewers who helped in shaping the final product; their comments and suggestions were very valuable. Special recognition is extended to Mr. Gay M. Wharton, my husband, for his support and assistance throughout the preparation of this book.
