Overview

The primary focus of a community health nurse is to improve the health of the community. To do this involves using demographic and epidemiological findings to assess the community‚Äôs health and diagnose its needs. This assessment is aligned with the module objective “Discuss the elements of practice in community/public health nursing.”

This assignment is not a paper, so there is no cover page. All of the work is completed by completing the attached template. As part of the assignment, you will complete the following tasks: typing data, an analysis of the findings with four (4) references, and community health nursing diagnoses directly on the template.

Compile a range of relevant demographic and epidemiological data found on the community assessment rubric for this assignment. Use the websites listed below, as well as other websites (you can also do a Google search to find the health data you are looking for), gather information about your county and compare it with your state and national numbers.
