Public Health Nurse

Description :

The Public Health nurse provides nursing services to individuals, families, communities, and population groups, directed toward the goals of prevention, assessment, risk reduction, and health status improvement. Nursing activities include, but are not limited to, systematic analysis of health data, care plan development, health education and advocacy, coalition building, and collaborating with community partners. Public Health nurses often collaborate and consult within multidisciplinary and multi-agency teams in order to achieve desirable outcomes for families and communities. Public Health nurses at the Boone County Health Department (BCHD) not only work within clinical programs and services provided by a local health department such as Women, Infants, Children; Family Case Management; High Risk Infant Follow-up; Immunizations; and Chronic and Communicable Diseases; but are also charged with the evolving responsibilities of serving the broad and overarching needs of the population.   Public Health nurses are an integral and dynamic part of BCHD’s team, taking on roles and responsibilities that are not traditionally considered clinical or nursing functions.
