Frequently Asked Questions About Community Nursing

To help further your understanding about community care nursing, we’ve answered some of the most common questions. If you have any other related enquiries, feel free to touch base with us and we’ll endeavour to provide you with the response you’re after.

What is Community Nursing?

Community nursing focuses on improving the health and wellbeing of individuals in their respective communities. It aims to: 

  • Promote wellness
  • Prevent illness
  • Manage chronic conditions

Why is Community Health Nursing Important?

Community health nursing is important because it plays a significant role in promoting public health. Community nurses can provide direct care to community members and educate them about managing chronic conditions and making healthy choices.

Who is Involved in Community Health Work?

To identify the health needs of various communities and develop interventions that promote well-being, community nurses work collaboratively with community leaders, organisations, and other healthcare professionals. Each has a specific role in assessing and providing for the clinical needs of community members.

What is the Main Goal of Community Nursing?

In community health nursing, the main goal is to provide for the entire community and not an individual. Most often, the recipients of care and support are from vulnerable populations, such as the elderly, and individuals living with disability. Community nursing also aims to promote self-care among families and community members.
