Reference: Shuster, George F., (2014). Community as Client: Assessment and Analysis. In Stanhope, Marcia and Lancaster, Jeanette, Public Health Nursing (8 th ed., pg. 413). Saint Louis, MO: Elsevier. . Your CHN Diagnoses MUST be something that a community/public health nurse can do something about. See example below. Note: Poverty is NOT a CHN diagnosis. Remember do NOT use NANDA Nursing Diagnoses. For example: Risk of asthma complications among children in SE Dallas County related to observations of overcrowded living conditions, lack of public transportation (may result in inability to access health care), high number of animals observed living in homes, poverty indications (may result in lack financial resources to purchase medications.)
