STATRef Nursing Title Name Change and New Edition

The 2015 edition of Population and Community Health Nursing, formerly called Community Health Nursing: Advocacy for Population Health, has had a name change and STAT!Ref has it available now.


The community/population health/public health nurse is charged with promoting the health of populations, not only the individuals within populations. This requires advocacy on the part of the nurse, for entire communities as well as for the individuals within.

The long-awaited sixth edition of Population and Community Health Nursing by respected leader and educator Mary Jo Clark has been thoroughly updated with an even stronger population-based nursing approach.

Population and Community Health Nursing, 6th edition continues to approach population-based/community health nursing from an aggregate perspective, clearly showing how nurses can serve to improve the health of populations within a community by functioning as advocates on many levels. To illustrate how that can be manifested, real-life vignettes begin every chapter, showing students what advocacy looks like in the public health context. In each chapter, clinical reasoning exercises are woven throughout in boxed features.

Those subscribers that have this resource please note that the resource has been moved on the STAT!Ref interface from "C" to "P" and the ISBN number and Marc records have changed.
