The philosophy of public health nursing based on according to Margaret Shetland is the worth dignity of man.

The concept of public health nursing or community health nursing was developed by Lilian Wald who was the person that established the Henry street settlement in the year 1893.

Lilian Wald spent most of her life in New York. She was encouraged to go to nursing school when she met a nurse that graduated from Beverly Nursing School who assisted her sister during child birth. She gave two major concept which was that: “a nurse can treat without being under any religious order or without the presence of any physician and also a nurse must live in the neighbor where she practiced.”

Community health nursing and public health nursing meet the demands of the public especially by care for the sick and identifying the cause of problem and solution to it in the community.

According to Margaret Shetland, the philosophy of practical health is the public health sector of nursing and is a specialized field of nursing. I really couldn’t find anything about what Margaret Shetland did for this field and what her philosophy is, so I can’t say whether the last two answers that say her philosophy is to identify the worth and dignity of a man are right or wrong.

With as little information that came up as what came up for me doing this search, I cannot say anything more about this topic. I wouldn’t feel right about it. I’m sorry about that, but that’s how it’s falling right now. This is simply all I can do right now. If you want more information, look for it.

The worth and dignity of man.

Margaret Shetland proposed that every Public Health Nursing scheme should always identify man’s worth and dignity as well.

Public Health Nursing is a concept developed by one Lillian Wald who was believed to have established the “Henry Street Settlement”. The Henry Street Settlement was established by Lillian Wald in the year 1893 in the city of New York. Public Health Nursing is also called “Community Health Nursing”. It is a special type of nursing which demands that Public Health Nurses should have a sort of database of the individuals living in their different communities. Such database should include the illnesses and other health records of these individuals.
Public Health Nurses are meant to provide free healthcare services to the members of their community.
