Short Description

Community Health Nursing: A Canadian Perspective, Fifth Edition , has been written with the undergraduate student in mind. The work on this edition is in response to the needs expressed by faculty and students for a broad, comprehensive, and yet concise textbook providing an overview of community health nursing. Each topic is written with the understanding that this will be the student's first foray into the community health nursing arena. We have chosen to incorporate the individual, family, community, system, and population as client perspectives throughout the text.

Over time there has been much discourse on the scope and practice of community health nursing. Historically, "community health nursing" was used to describe all nursing outside the hospital setting. In this textbook, community health nursing is defined as a specialty in nursing that encompasses a number of sub-specialties and a variety of practice areas, including home health nursing and public health nursing.

The community client may be an individual, family, community, system, or population, but care is rendered with an eye to the health of the population. The setting may be a home, institution, community, or agency serving the population. The common academic preparation is the basic baccalaureate education leading to the designation Registered Nurse. The employer may be an individual, family, community, government, nongovernmental, or not for-profit agency. When our chapter authors address a specific health issue or a particular population or aggregate in this textbook, each is speaking through the lens of her or his experience and/or research about a segment within the larger whole of community health nursing.
