Community Health Nurse Practice

Community Health Nurse Practice
  • Has the whole community as their client, as well
    as groups, families and individuals.
  • Recognises the impact of life course and social
    determinants of health and works in partnership
    with the community to address these.

30
Community Health Nurse Practice
  • Utilises the primary health care philosophy to
    guide practice.
  • Has a specialised body of knowledge which
    reflects current research and evidence based
    practice.

31
Community Health Nurse Practice
  • Community health nurses recognise health as a
    state of complete physical, mental and social
    well-being and not merely the absence of disease
    and infirmity W.H.O.
  • Community health nurses deal with clients in a
    holistic manner, working with them wherever they
    are on the health illness continuum.

33
What guides our practice
  • We recognise we must identify the needs of the
    community as well as individuals and groups, as a
    healthy community supports and empowers
    individuals to develop and maintain life long
    healthy lifestyles and choices.
  • Many health issues require a community wide
    approach and a community involvement in solving
    them.

34

35
What guides our practice
  • Communities are unique and dynamic with a variety
    of norms, cultures and value systems.
  • Community health nurses are creative and adapt
    their practice to respond to the needs of each
    community and groups and individual clients who
    are members of that community.

What guides our practice

    overall health status of the community as well as
    responses to episodic health needs.

What is different about our practice
  • Community health nurse practice, by the nature of
    the work setting, requires autonomy,
    self-direction and use of a high level of
    professional judgement.

42
What is different about our practice
  • Community health nurses interact with a wide
    range of both professional and non professional
    people within the community and must have a
    variety of interpersonal skills.
