This chapter discusses integrative community health nursing, providing a model to guide practitioners as they address the physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs of individuals, families, communities and society overall. Community health nurses are in a prime position to comprehensively assess needs of community members, and integrate beneficial and culturally based healing interventions. At all levels of care, integrative community health nurses establish strong caring relationships, recognize the importance of cultural beliefs and values, and incorporate therapies to nurture the body-mind-spirit, resulting in whole person/system healing. Exemplars of integrative nursing are presented to illustrate creative possibilities for community health and wellness.
