Equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in community health nursing! Community/Public Health Nursing, 8th Edition discusses the nurse’s role in population health promotion with a unique "upstream" preventive focus and a strong social justice approach, all in a concise, easy-to-read text. It shows how nurses can take an active role in social action and health policy — especially in caring for diverse and vulnerable population groups. This edition integrates the NCSBN Clinical Judgment Measurement Model to help prepare students for the Next Generation NCLEX®. Clinical examples and photo novellas show how nursing concepts apply to the real world.
