very informative textbook!  June 26, 2011

Very informative textbook, reads easy, and makes information easy to remember. When reading this textbook you know you are reading an educational book, but you feel like you are reading something for fun. I received this textbook promptly, and it was in good condition, as advertised. I needed it for a college class, so when it came to us so quickly, I was thankful. I would recommend this seller to anyone. Thanks very much!

Community/Public Health Nursing: Promoting the Health of Populations: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


Covering the nurse's role in promoting community health, Community/Public Health Nursing, 5th Edition is known for its "upstream" preventive focus and social justice approach, photo novellas with clinical stories, and a concise, readable style. It shows how you, as a nurse, can take an active role in social action and health policy - especially in caring for diverse population groups. Expert authors Mary A. Nies and Melanie McEwen discuss today's issues and trends, and describe the key issues and responsibilities of contemporary community/public health nursing.
