We just received a new review for Community Health Nursing: Caring for the Public’s Health, Third Edition by Karen Saucier Lundy PhD, RN, FAAN and Sharyn Janes, PhD, RN, ACRN. According to Jessica C. Baxter, MSN, RN, Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center, for Doody’s Review Service,
“This well-written book provides another option for schools of nursing to consider when seeking out a basic textbook on community health nursing.”
Community Health Nursing: Caring for the Public’s Health, Third Edition focuses on teaching nursing students about population health and community health nursing. The text is directed toward health promotion and primary prevention in the community, with newly revised course content in each chapter. Health care in the community is presented within the population’s cultural context, whether influenced by age, gender, race, or ethnicity. The Third Edition represents a broad range of diversity and depicts the unique composition of communities in the U.S. from the standpoint of varied populations to unique health perspectives.
This text was crafted in collaboration with many well-known and respected experts in the field and was guided by the Association of Community Health Nursing Educators Essentials of Baccalaureate Nursing Education for Entry level Practice in Community/Public Health Nursing. The authors employ a unique pedagogical approach by structuring the text around reflective and connected learning through the inclusion of art, poetry, narratives, media and literature.
