How does Community Health Nursing differ from PH Nursing?
Community health nursing is COMPREHENSIVE, general, with CONTINUAL services rather than episodic care. Clients are individuals, families and groups. Focus on how the health of the individual, family, and groups affect the community as a whole.
PH Nursing PROTECTS & PROMOTES health of POPULATIONS. PREVENTS disease and disability by creating conditions in which people can be healthy. Focuses on the health of the community as a whole and its affect on individuals, families, and groups
