Covering the nurse's role in promoting community health, Community/Public Health Nursing, 5th Edition is known for its "upstream" preventive focus and social justice approach, photo novellas with clinical stories, and a concise, readable style. It shows how you, as a nurse, can take an active role in social action and health policy – especially in caring for diverse population groups. Expert authors Mary A. Nies and Melanie McEwen discuss today's issues and trends, and describe the key issues and responsibilities of contemporary community/public health nursing.

  • An "upstream" focus addresses factors that are the precursors to poor health in the community.

  • A "social justice" approach promotes health for everyone.

  • Photo novellas use photographs to tell stories showing real-life clinical scenarios and applications of important community health nursing roles.

  • Case Study: Application of the Nursing Process feature presents specific community components of the nursing process separately from individual and family.

  • Clinical examples offer snippets of real-life client situations.

  • Research Highlights boxes show the application of current research to chapter content.

  • Ethical Insights boxes highlight ethical issues and concerns.

  • Healthy People 2020 boxes summarize objectives and their importance in community health.

  • Objectives, key terms, and chapter outlines introduce important concepts and terminology at the beginning of every chapter.

  • Learning Activities at the end of each chapter ask you to apply concepts to the world outside the classroom.

  • New Health Promotion and Risk Reduction chapter details the promotion of health and presents strategies that can identify risk factors for illness.

  • Faith Community Nursing chapter reflects current terminology from the ANAÕs Scope and Standards of Practice, and includes more coverage of the spiritual health of clients.

  • Health: A Community View chapter expands its discussion of the continual challenges and strategies associated with the delivery of health care.

  • Communicable Disease chapter includes new information about public health surveillance, outbreaks, and bioterrorism.
