The focus of the Community Health Nurse (CHN) is health promotion, disease prevention, and health protection at individual, family, and community levels with the practice of culturally sensitive care. Our CHN provides direct nursing care within the community health centre, this includes diabetic foot care, well-baby visits, tuberculosis screening, and immunizations. Currently, the CHN organizes COVID-19 vaccination clinics, provides patient centered follow ups to all positive Covid-19 cases, and completes contact tracing. Additionally, she offers health promotion and education programs throughout the year. The CHN is available to provide a range of wellness services to community members for walk-ins or on an appointment basis, depending on client needs.
