Many factors have an impact on a community's overall health. In many metropolitan settings, infectious diseases such as tuberculosis can spread out of control. Preventable diseases, environmental hazards, violence, accidents, and injuries continue to pose a threat to children's health and well-being. Infants, pregnant women, and other vulnerable populations have experienced a rise in morbidity and death as a result of unequal access to health care and insurance coverage. Despite these obstacles, all community nurses have the ability to enhance health outcomes and increase the infrastructure for disease monitoring and management. Community health nurses work in traditional public health settings to ensure that pregnant and new mothers have the resources they need to care for themselves and their children. Nurses who work in community health clinics, churches, homeless shelters, and schools are praised for their adaptability and willingness to give care in a variety of contexts.
Nurses in the field of home health nursing provide holistic home care to patients of all ages. Home health care is a cost-effective method of providing high-quality care in the comfort of the client's own home. Based on the client's diagnosis, home health nurses build care plans to help them reach their goals. Preventive, therapeutic, and rehabilitative interventions can all be included in these strategies. Certified nursing assistants are also supervised by home health nurses. The Home Healthcare Nurses Association is a professional nursing association for home health nurses (HHNA). Clients who are well enough to be discharged home but still require professional nursing workers to assess, initiate, and oversee nursing interventions are eligible for home health care.
