Public and Community Health Nursing Practice A Population-Based Approach Press Reviews

A very comprehensive approach to public health - community health. I feel that the content and direction are very much needed. -- Clair P. Millet, APRN, MN, CNS This text is needed very badly-especially with advanced practice. Most graduate nursing programs focus on primary care and an important component of primary care is community health and public health issues. This book contains much needed information required for advanced nursing practice in primary care. I know of no other text so complete. -- Jacqueline Rhoads
