Book Description

March 23, 2011 0781758513 978-0781758512 Pap/Psc
Harkness,  a 2011 AJN Book of the Year Award recipant integrates the principles of epidemiology and basic biostatistics with core principles of community health nursing and public health nursing. This focus will provide both the methods and the knowledge necessary to gather, analyze, and evaluate data as evidence for community health practice decisions.

Focusing on the individual, only in the context of the community setting, Harkness also emphasizes the global community, reflecting increasingly global healthcare concerns. Cultivating critical thinking skills through case studies and examples focusing on regional national and international community settings, Harkness is an applied core text for students in Baccalaureate programs who are preparing to be generalists in community health and public health nursing (CHN & PHN).

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor choice. July 19, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is poorly written and poorly organized. I am in my last semester of nursing school and I am so disappointed in this book. Perhaps it is written on a graduate level and is not suited to undergraduate study? I should be studying for a community test right now, but have such a hard time making myself open this book. I can spend hours reading a chapter and not have learned anything. Or worse -- learned something wrong.

I like to read, and I depend on reading chapters in order to pass exams. But this book does not help me grasp any of the concepts, much less be able to apply them on exams.

If you're reading this, I know you probably HAVE to buy this book and I am sorry about that. I just wish instructors would think twice before choosing this as a textbook for their courses. Reading it has been frustrating, to say the least. If I wasn't so far into the semester I would get a more readable book to help me learn this subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harkness & DeMarco January 3, 2012
By Jackie
Format:Paperback
I am familiar with this new public health text. As a community/public health educator of over 25 years I find this textbook readable for undergraduates and catalyzing specifically because cases are integrated in the text. This allows the reader and learner to apply the knowledge shared. This is accomplished across a reasonable amount of chapters (24) as opposed to 40 or more in other textbooks. For a student the amount of money paid for a book should be reflective of the degree of use. A semester is self-limiting in length and in the case of this book the pertinent areas of community and public health are represented realistically in the time frame.
The scholarly nature of the book is excellent with specific referencing to evidence-based practice from refereed community, public health, and research literature throughout. Authors are of national and international reputation in each chapter. The illustrations are colorful and attractive and in each chapter there is a respectful presentation of information to help all kinds of learners.

1.0 out of 5 stars All common sense June 4, 2014
By JD Fan
Format:Paperback
Almost all of the information presented in the book is common sense. Also, is it too much to ask to get a glossary in a textbook?!?!?!? I don't understand why authors fail to include one.

This book is probably one of the best that I have encountered in my nursing education. It won the Book of the Year Award from the AJN in 2011, and I can definitely see why. It's clear, concise, and interesting. I highly recommend this book to anyone in community health/public health nursing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Deal for College Students. November 26, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rented this book for our daughter's class in her Bachelors of Science in Nursing. She enjoyed to book, it was well worth the rental price and the ease of returning the book was great. I love the fact that Amazon reminds you several times to get the book back to avoid paying for it. A wonderful service for college classes.

This book is good. I think depending on your teacher, it might not be needed. If you are interesting in community nursing this book explains it well.
