Public Health Nurses (PHNs) work to improve the conditions and behaviors that affect the health of our communities by applying a complement of services in addressing root causes of poor health and chronic conditions.
- Provide family-centered, community based nursing services to individuals, families, or groups in a community. These may include case management, client advocacy, health education, health screening, monitoring, follow-up, and consultation.
- Collaborate and partner with community members and community agencies to address the health status of target populations and health policy concerns.
- Provide information on accessing health services for those without insurance or who are without access to health care.
