Community Health Nursing
Community health nursing involves several basic concepts, including the promotion of healthy living, prevention of disease and health problems, medical treatment, rehabilitation, evaluation of community health nursing care delivery and prevention systems, and research to further community health nursing and wellness.Working as a community health nurse is an excellent way to combine a love of nursing and a love of your community. It is the job of a community health nurse to help keep these community health problems under control. They often work in community health centers offering treatment and advice to members of the community. They will also try to educate the community on and work toward preventing common health problems.Communities need these types of nurses for a number of reasons. Most importantly, these nurses – working in conjunction with other healthcare professionals – can help improve the health of a community as a whole.
