Community based nursing would include agencies like home health care and hospice. Community health nursing would include agencies like the department of health and human services (DHHS)- local agencies in the community. Public health nursing would include agencies like the CDC and FDA- government agencies.

The difference between hospital nursing and community nursing is that the latter one stresses prevention methods for patients. Community nursing aims to lower the risk of patients needed hospital treatments, while nurses at hospitals deal with illnesses usually after they have progressed.

Community health nursing is the synthesis of nursing theory and public health theory applied to promoting and preserving the health of populations. The focus of community health nursing practice is the community as a whole, with nursing care of individuals, families and groups being involved within the context of promoting and preserving the health of the community.Hitchcock, J.
