Trying to keep an entire community healthy is a big job, but somebody has to do it. And that person could be you, if you decide to become a community health nurse.

Unlike traditional nurses, community health nurses don’t worry about the health of just one person at a time, but entire communities at a time. This could include areas from small towns to entire countries – and everything in between. Although it’s a stressful job at times with massive amounts of responsibility, most community health nurses find it personally rewarding as well.
