Summary

The community/public health nurse is charged with promoting the health of populations, not only the individuals within populations. This requires advocacy on the part of the nurse, for entire communities as well as for the individuals within. The fifth edition of Community Health Nursing by respected leader and educator Mary Jo Clark approaches community health nursing from an aggregate perspective, clearly showing how nurses can serve to improve the health of populations within a community by functioning as advocates on many levels. To illustrate how that can be manifested, real-life vignettes begin every chapter, showing students what advocacy looks like in the public health context. In each chapter, critical thinking exercises are woven throughout in boxed features.
