Community Nursing

Community nurses assess patients and provide nursing care that allows them to remain in their own homes, maintain their independence, or have additional support after discharge from hospital. A Community nurse will work as part of a team providing wound care, catheter care, palliative care and administer a range of medications, including IVs within the patient’s home. They also train carers and family members to undertake a range of health care interventions if individuals cannot do this for themselves. As well as treatment, a community nurse can offer advice and support with a range of health concerns and long term conditions and will refer to other organisations according to patient’s individual needs. Community Nurses can specialise in different areas such as palliative care, diabetes, heart failure, ear care and continence care. A community nurse will often be involved in general health promotion work such as the annual Flu vaccination campaign.
