Community Health Nursing

We work to protect and improve the health of individuals, families, and communities by empowering individuals to achieve optimal health and assuring access to health care. We do this by assessing the needs of individuals across their life span, addressing their concerns, identifying their needs, developing health plans and interventions, and achieving their health goals.

We accept referrals from many sources throughout the community, including physicians, social workers, the general public and you.

Based off your needs, circumstance, or preference you will be assigned a public health nurse that will best support you. If you have any questions regarding eligibility or about the referral process, you may call 805-981-5115.
