Part of the Community Health Care Series book series (CHCS)


Community health care nursing is not a single concept. Rather, it comes about as the result of a combination of various interrelated and overlapping concepts that amalgamate to form the unique profession of community health care nursing. The title ‘community nursing’ suggests that individuals ‘nurse’ communities and they do. It is widely accepted that embraced within this term is the concept that community nurses also ‘nurse’ all individuals and families who reside in those specific communities which nurses are allocated to.
