New edition an invaluable resource for public health nursing education

Develop evidence-based public health nursing practice in diverse settings

INDIANAPOLIS—Public health nursing is an important clinical practice area that promotes and protects the health of
individuals, families, and communities. Its concepts and practice can be integrated into nursing practice in any clinical setting. A true collaboration between practicing public health nurses and public health nursing educators, the fourth edition of Public Health Clinical Manual: The Henry Street Model for Nurses from Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing (Sigma) continues to be a gold standard in public health nursing education. 

Authors Patricia M. Schoon and Carolyn M. Porta have built on the framework of the Henry Street Consortium’s 13 competencies for population-based, entry-level public health nursing in a fully revised, full-color edition that will support readers’ exploration of the field of public health nursing and the unique responsibilities and challenges that come with being a public health nurse. The new edition continues to focus on preparing students to achieve entry-level public health nursing competencies as graduates. It also helps orient new public health nurses in the core competencies that will help them be effective in their new roles. 

Using storytelling in the form of chapter narrative case studies and evidence examples, the text offers opportunities to reinforce and apply foundational knowledge of public health nursing to nursing practice. The fourth edition includes a new competency that promotes, assesses, and coordinates population health. Additionally, each chapter includes updated references to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and strengthened content for diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout.
