Introduction"Health is a right, not a privilege" a saying that strongly correlates to Community health nursing in such a way that it focuses on the welfare of everybody. But what is really the true essence of Community health nursing or CHN? According to the American Nurse Association, Community health nursing practice promotes and preserves the health of populations by integrating the skills and knowledge relevant to both nursing and public health. The practice is comprehensive and general, and is not limited to a particular age or diagnostic group; it is continual, and is not limited to episodic care? While community health nursing practice includes nursing directed to individuals, families and groups, the dominant responsibility is to the population as a whole (Maglaya, 2004, 1997). Basing on the definition, we could site that the main goal of Community Health Nursing is the promotion and preservation of health of the whole population that is intertwined with the other preventive services and programs by the department. It reaches out to communities that have difficulty in getting the necessary health care provided by the community. This action would be made possible through the cooperation of the city health office and barangay health units. We could also draw out that the nature of the practice is comprehensive, general, continual and not episodic. In Community health nursing, the different levels of clientele being dealt with are the individual, families, population
