Public Health Nursing
Public health nurses tend to devote themselves to the health and well-being of the communities they serve. They educate them in beneficial health practices and disease prevention. They also identify common health problems in the community while treating patients, in order to create intervention plans to prevent the health problems and safety issues they discover. Promoting prevention over treatment is the main motto of a Public health nurse. By correcting poor health practices and maintaining a safe home or work environment risks to patients’ health can be reduced. The grail of a public health nursing is to educate patients through community-based intervention programs to identify and correct multiple health issues.
