Abstract

Caring has been called the interactive exemplar of nursing in that it relates other foundational concepts of person, health, and environment within the profession and discipline. However, to reflect the dynamic praxis of knowing, being, and doing that is community health nursing, caring must include a focus on communities, the environment, and the global society. The concepts of community and community interventions remain complex and difficult, thus, community caring remains unclear. This article will explore the concept and offer a model of caring praxis in community health nursing.
