Community nursing care forms an integral part of primary nursing care and therefore primary healthcare. It is performed in the patient's home, health centre, local community and in-the-field. The community nurse, who is a member of the nursing and health team, operates at all levels of health education: primary, secondary and tertiary, and promotes the health of the individual, family and whole population.
