Public Health Nursing


The primary focus of Public Health Nursing is the prevention of illness, promotion and maintenance of health through the provision of therapeutic services, counseling, education and advocacy services. This is accomplished through assessment and identification of the individual,  family and community needs.

The promotion of consumer participation in establishing health goals, planning programs to meet identified needs and coordination of community health programs and services is also a responsibility of  Public Health Nursing. The Public Health Nursing program is flexible and  individualized to meet needs within existing resources and takes into  account prevailing economic, cultural, social and geographic characteristics.
