A Textbook of Community Nursing is a comprehensive and evidence-based introduction covering the full range of professional issues, including community nursing roles, personal safety, public health, and health promotion.
This is an essential text for all pre-registration nursing students, students on specialist community nursing courses, and qualified nurses entering community practice for the first time.
"Any nurse in the community, or contemplating a move into community-based nursing, would be well advised to study this book. It maps the territory, explores the professional requirements, and shares the wisdom and learning of expert practitioners … It will help the community novice to chart a safe course across some of the most exciting, challenging, and rewarding waters in a nursing career."
