Public Health Nursing

Public health nursing, also defined as community health nursing is a nursing specialty focused on public health. The term was coined by Lillian Wald of the Henry Street Settlement, or, Public health nurses (PHNs) or community health nurses "integrate community involvement and knowledge about the whole population with personal, clinical understandings of the health and illness experiences of individuals and families in the population. Public health nursing in United States traces back to a nurse named Lillian Wald who, in 1893, established the Henry Street Settlement in New York City and coined the expression "public health nurse". A Public or Community Health Nurse is awaited to comply with the duties and limitations of the American Nurse Association (ANA) publication Public Health Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice. Public health nurses work within communities and focus on different areas to develop the overall health of the people within that community.
