Canada has embraced the goal of the World Health Organization to achieve health for all.
This has created a paradigm shift from a focus on direct care to include health promotion and community development, consistent with a primary health care approach.
Nevertheless, a clearly articulated vision for the role of public health nurses (PHNs) is lacking.
Despite the fact that PHNs make up the largest group of health care workers in the community, their collective opinions and ideas regarding their own practice are seldom sought in a systematic manner.
We conducted a survey of public health nurses in British Columbia.
