I am taking a class and would like to get some ideas from others. Is there a difference between the term Community Health Nursing and Community Based Nursing? Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Usually, people refer to community based nursing as nursing in agencies or locations outside of hospital or institutional location.
Community health nursing refers to practice based on a population focus of actually assessing and planning to meet the needs of a specific population or group with a health issue in common.
In actual practice it may be a challenge to know which you are experiencing.
