CHAPTER I Introduction Objectives Scope and Limitation



The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Nursing is one of the significant contributors to health. It requires a wide variety of knowledge and skills in order to help to improve the health of a client. The nature of community health nursing is directed towards the individual, groups, families, and community. The community health nurse plays a unique role in the community, promoting health, prevention of illness and care of the sick at home. One of the tasks that you will do as a Community Health Nursing is to find out everything you can about the people in your community and the factors that influence their health. This information is vitally important because the services you provide must be targeted to meet the communitys needs. The way you begin to find out this information is to conduct a community survey, which is a specific type of health research. The purpose of the survey is to generate data to help you construct a community profile a report on the households in the community, their inhabitants and their health needs and problems. Public health nurses provide a range of health care services in the community. They are usually based in your local health center and are assigned to cover specific geographical areas. They provide services in schools, in __________, in day care and other community centers and in people's homes. Public health nursing teams provide basic nursing care as well as advice and assistance to their patients. They provide planned essential weekend nursing and, in some cases, twilight nursing (this is the service for terminally ill patients). Public health nurses also act as an important point of access for other community care services.
