This week, my Instructor assigned me a chapter in the course textbook
that discussed the role of the public health nurse in a specific setting. Based on my assigned chapter (The Nurse Leader) and I am bearing in mind the primary prevention focus of the community/public health as a nurse, I am to respond to the following:
-What differentiates the role of the community and public health nurse from other health professionals?
-What skills and knowledge are necessary for the type of decision making inherent in population-focused nursing practice?
-How do these skills differ from those required in the institutional setting?
