Designed to provide concise, focused information on nursing in the community, this easy-to-read textbook covers everything a nurse practicing in this specialty needs to know - from nursing roles and care settings to vulnerable population groups. It features a practical, "community-oriented" approach, with an emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention. Now in full color throughout, this edition provides new chapters on vulnerable populations and evidence-based practice, as well as expanded coverage of key topics such as bioterrorism and homeland security.

  • The various roles and settings for community health nursing are discussed, for a comprehensive perspective on this field.
  • Clinical Applications present real-life community client situations with questions and answers.
  • Evidence-Based Practice boxes focus on recent research findings and applications to community nursing practice.
  • What Would You Do? activities sharpen problem-solving skills and challenge students to apply chapter material outside the classroom.
  • Briefly Noted sections present topics for discussion, special clinical considerations, and facts of interest related to chapter content.
  • How To boxes present specific, application-oriented information.
  • Health promotion is emphasized throughout with discussions of how national public health efforts impact community health practice, and Healthy People 2010 objectives for various areas are highlighted in special boxes.
