Population-Based Public Health Clinical Manual: The Henry Street Model for Nurses has proven to be one of the most important public health texts for students and practitioners alike. Focused on developing evidence-based public health nursing practice in diverse settings, the core text builds on the Henry Street Consortium’s framework of 12 competencies for population-based, entry-level public health nursing (PHN). This full-color, newly designed third edition has completely revised and updated coverage, including:
- A new competency on utilizing principles and science of environmental health to promote safe and sustainable environments for individuals, families, systems, and communities
- Examples demonstrating the global growth in public health nursing
- Theory applications showing how PHNs use frameworks to further public health initiatives
- United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) providing a framework for public health nursing practice
An instructor's guide and teaching material for this book is available upon request. Please email Sigma Marketplace for more information.
