Community nurses in Australia are a vibrant and responsive group of professionals, meeting the health needs of Australians where they most want to be cared for - within their own community. Like all health professionals in Australia, community nurses are currently engaged in transition, seeking to respond to unprecedented societal and healthcare changes. These changes are impacting on both the health needs of Australians and the way that community nursing care is provided.

With chapters written by authors who are central figures in Australian community nursing, this text has been developed as a resource specifically to inform and engage undergraduate nurses about community nursing practices across the lifespan. Diverse roles and contexts explored include those of district nurses, practice nurses, nurse practitioners, rural and remote area nurses, domiciliary midwives, child health nurses, school nurses, faith community nurses and hospital-to-home nurses.
