This new edition has welcome updates, with the newest version of Henry Street Consortium Entry-Level Population-Based Public Health Nursing Competencies. Relationships among students, preceptors, and practitioners are reinforced and illustrated with individual and community-based examples. Ethical parameters are reiterated, and there's a renewed emphasis on both national and global health. Revised tables throughout bolster the narrative. The scholarly and reflective updates from the previous edition assure the continuing value of this text to teachers, learners, and patients seeking healthier communities.”

“This book is well-organized, easy to read and understand, and full of critical information for success as a PHN. The elements included in each chapter make it unique among texts on public health nursing, as it is the most relevant to actual practice. The text provides links to other critical documents, such as the Standards of Public Health Nursing, Core Functions, and Sustainable Development Goals. The examples are specific and easy to follow, and the Notebook sections provide excellent summaries at a student's level. I would recommend this book to faculty in any BSN program and to anyone who wishes to pursue a career in public health nursing.”

“In reviewing this text, I absolutely fell in love with the framework and the Henry Street Consortium model. This book showcases the essence of the public health nursing role and the noble history of the discipline. The content's competency structure is perfect for education and clearly identifies experiences for students and teachers. Advocacy for population health is underscored as a public health nursing role and is grounded in the real world. The authors emphasize leadership and political impact and the core of what it means to be a public health nurse. The text portrays the distinct commitment to principles of social justice, which drives advocacy and taking action for what is right.”

“The third edition of Population-Based Public Health Clinical Manual: The Henry Street Model for Nurses is an excellent primer on public health nursing (PHN) practice and serves as a valuable resource for undergraduate students as well as PHN staff. This comprehensive and inspiring text invokes the timeless perspectives of public health nursing's founder, Lillian Wald; builds on Minnesota's rich tradition of PHN practice; and guides readers’ understanding of PHN cornerstone beliefs, values, and principles. The authors skillfully thread contemporary competencies, essentials, and standards into local and global practice scenarios with individuals and families, communities, and populations. They create a mind-set that challenges, questions, and encourages actions to promote the public's health.”

“Population-Based Public Health Clinical Manual gives student nurses an outstanding introduction to public health nursing. It is also an excellent resource for both new and seasoned public health nurses. Public health nursing has changed greatly over the 38 years I have been practicing, and I am currently director of a health and human services agency. This manual provides resources for human services staff to help them understand what public health is about and how collaboration can make a difference for the populations we serve. I recommend this book for student nurses during their public health practicum and as a resource for local public health agencies.”
