Historically, community health nursing has responded to the changing health care needs of the community and continues to meet those needs in a variety of diverse roles and settings. Community Health Nursing: Caring for the Public's Health, Second Edition reflects this response and is representative of what communities signify in the United States--a unified society made up of many different populations and unique health perspectives. This text provides an emphasis on population-based nursing directed toward health promotion and primary prevention in the community. It is both community-based and community-focused, reflecting the current dynamics of the health care system. The Second Edition contains new chapters on disaster nursing and community collaborations during emergencies. The chapters covering Family health, ethics, mental health, and pediatric nursing have all been significantly revised and updated.
