Summary

Historically, community health nursing has responded to the changing health care needs of the community and continues to meet those needs in a variety of diverse roles and settings. Community Health Nursing: Caring for the Public's Health reflects this response and is representative of what communities signify in the United States--a unified society made up of many different populations and unique health perspectives. This text provides an emphasis on population-based nursing directed toward health promotion and primary prevention in the community. It is both community-based and community-focused, reflecting the current dynamics of the health care system.

This is the textbook you've been waiting for: an undergraduate community health nursing text that is reader friendly, yet sophisticated; one that addresses communities, target populations, and individuals, and clearly draws the distinctions between each. It prepares students for addressing the problems of target populations in the community, as well as those of communities as a whole.

Community Health Nursing provides unique coverage on the following topics:

  • health policy, including coverage of economics and managed care
  • nursing informatics, addressing telehealth implications, global health issues, and the fully-participating client of today
  • holistic health, including coverage of complementary and alternative, non-Western health practices and hospice
