This is a significant time for public health nurses, who must uphold the fundamental precept of the greatest good for the greatest number of people, and also function as clinicians, educators, researchers, and administrators in today's complex social milieu. Public Health Nursing publishes thought-provoking theoretical discussions, timely reviews, dynamic clinical reports and commentary by the nation's health care leaders. This bimonthly publication focuses and places in context the rapidly changing issues which concern public health professionals as they manage today's system and invent the next decade's. The Journal's highly respected contributors provide a vehicle for remaining on the cutting edge of current thinking and research in the field.
