Paper Guidelines


Fall 2015




The goal of this paper is to stimulate critical thinking about the role of the community health nurse in identifying community health issues and describing how nurses can develop, plan and implement strategies to address community health problems. As part of this paper, each student will access Healthy People 2020 to select a problem of interest, conduct an in-depth review of current literature about the topic, identify and thoroughly analyze a minimum of three community resources (agencies) pertinent to the community of concern.




Based on the geopolitical community assessment completed for this semester:




1.         Access the Healthy People 2020 website ( . Click on topics and objectives.  Select one community health topic that interests you.  Click on the topic to take you to a section that will describe in depth the scope of the problem, the trends in the United States, and the challenges for intervening with the area of concern. Read this section thoroughly. Then select one of the listed Objectives as a particular focus for your paper.




2.         Think about the geopolitical community assessment you did. Analyze that community in relation to the health concern you have identified.  Provide supporting evidence with national, state, or local statistics why this area of concern affects the community you have chosen.




4.         Perform a literature search for nursing articles related to your topic. Your final reference list should contain at least 8 references: 3 substantial nursing articles peer reviewed that include clear implications for community nursing practice, written within the past 5 years; and 5 other references, which can include your textbook (for background on your topic); the Healthy People 2020 site (for information about your objective); additional articles from related fields (within 5 years); and other websites (professional or academic). Nursing articles should come from peer-reviewed nursing journals, or peer-reviewed multidisciplinary journals that include nurse authors. Do not use opinion articles such as editorials, or popular websites such as WedMD




5.         Identify two agencies of which (1)  has to be a nurse in your chosen community; the agency must address the identified health concern. Interview your key informant (nurse) face to face. Information about the other agency can be obtained by internet search. Fill (type) out an agency assessment form for each. Be sure that the agencies you access have a direct relationship to the health concern you are investigating.  The agency assessments must be the student’s own work. Photocopying from another’s assessment is considered plagiarism.




  1. From your readings and your agency visits, think about how the community health nurse can intervene to assist the community to achieve the chosen Healthy People 2020 objective.  Begin to formulate interventions based on your knowledge of community health nursing.
