The book Community Health Nursing: Promoting and Protecting the Public’s Health is written by Judith Ann Allender, Ph.D. Rector, Cherie, Ph.D. Warner, Kristine D. The seventh edition of Community Health Nursing: Promoting and Protecting the Public’s Health continues the tradition of previous editions of this text, beginning with Barbara Spradley’s initial publication in 1981. The purpose of this textbook is to introduce college students to nursing to the exciting world of nursing outside the acute care setting, whether in a public health department, community health agency, school, or other settings. We look forward to sharing our enthusiasm and devotion to this population-centered, community-oriented form of nursing. Compared to critical care nurses, those working in public or community health are often more autonomous and exert greater influence on the overall health of their communities by being political advocates for their clients and attaches.
