Abstract

ABSTRACT: Most nurses can describe a memorable patient, one who moved them deeply, and one who made them remember why they chose nursing as a calling. Thinking of a population with an emotional connection is usually more difficult. Current nursing practice includes the ability to serve a population or community as client. This article describes core functions of public health-assessment, policy development, and assurance, while offering biblical resources the Christian nurse has to consider a population with the same compassion as one does an individual.
