Historical approaches to community health nursing align with the values, concepts, and principles of integrative nursing. Caring across individual, family, community, and population levels of scale, integrative community health nurses recognize that the whole is reflected in the individual and the individual is reflected in the whole. Innovative integrative models of practice support optimal personal wellbeing, build community capacity, and nurture whole-systems wellbeing. This chapter discusses the principles of integrative nursing as a context for nursing in communities and presents three exemplars of integrative community healthcare programs: school nurses, the Partnership for Native American Cancer Prevention, and Capacitar International.
