This paper traces the evolution of a broader environmental health role for nursing by focusing on the health effects of exposure to environmental pollutants and of global environmental change.
This evolving role is reviewed through the examination of selected community health nursing texts published during the last several decades.
Key role strategies based on this expanded and evolving environmental role are proposed.
Finally, a survey is described that is intended to heighten awareness of personal and professional attitudes and behaviors related to the environment.
