Promoting the health of communities has been the rallying cry (now renewed) from the nation's top public health officials.
Public health nurses have always stressed community health promotion, not only in their work but also in the educating of future public health nurses.
Facilitating the shift from focusing primarily upon secondary and tertiary prevention, individual, and disease-oriented processes is a constant challenge, given the current health care and reimbursement systems.
The objectives of this paper are :
To give a brief historical review of the nation's health objectives, other recent pertinent documents, and early public health nursing's emphases regarding community health promotion ; to give a selected overview of recent community health promotion programs implemented by community and public health nurses in nursing education and practice ; and to focus on present challenges to nursing in implementing community health promotion.
