  • Nursing Information

  • Public health nurses integrate community involvement and know ledge about the entire population with personal, clin ical understandings of the health and illness experiences of individuals and families within the populati on (American Public Health Association, 2009) Public health nurses are direct ly engaged in the inter-discipli nary activities of the core public health functions of assessment, a ssurance and policy development. In any setting, the role of public health nurses focu ses on the prevention of illness, injury or disability, the promotion of health, and main tenance of the health of populations. They translate and articulate the health and illness experiences of diverse, often vulnerable individuals and families in the population to health planners and policy makers, and assist members of the community to voic e their problems and aspirations (American Public Health Association, 2009) The Public Health Nurse's mission is to im prove, preserve and protect the health of the citizens of the City of Peabody. The Publ ic Health Nurse will advocate for a safe environment, for reduction of known health risks, and for application of known preventive health measures.

  • The Peabody Department of Health and Human Services employs 11 school nurses and a school nurse leader, who provide full-time nursing coverage in each of the City's 10 schools. In addition to providing medical assessments and treatment to staff and students, the school nurses work closely with school personnel to promote safety and wellness in the school community.
