Community health nursing is a synthesis of nursing practice, within the context of public health and primary health care. Community nursing is founded on a social view of health, and upholds the values of access, equity and self-determination. The nature of community health nursing is comprehensive and directed towards the individual, families and the community at large. Community health nurses empower people to understand and respond effectively to those areas having a negative impact on their health and wellbeing by assisting people with accessing information, resources and services appropriate to their needs. Community health nurses assist people in the local community to maximise their health potential and wellbeing through; health assessment, counselling, screening, health promotion/education and community development.
