Environmental Nursing

The primary dictum for registered nurses, as health care professionals, is First, do no harm. In the increasingly complex environment in which health care is delivered today, registered nurses are the premiere advocates for the safety and quality of patient care, health care practices and products. Pollution, contamination of food and water, indoor and outdoor air quality issues, lead paint, toxins in health and beauty aids, etc. Well, we surely all get the point – there are myriad risks inherent in our daily environment and some are especially vulnerable to these hidden dangers. It’s a focus that increasingly involves many disciplines, both from within and outside the healthcare community. On the broad level, it involves research, assessment, advocacy, policy development and community education; on a more personal scale, the patient-provider level, it finds dedicated healthcare professionals incorporating new understanding and new skills into their daily practices.
