Community Nurses and Health Visitor

Community Nurse

Community nurses are registered nurses who provide care to patients in their communities. They perform both clinical and nonclinical duties, such as performing diagnostic tests, administering injections, cleaning and dressing wounds, setting up intravenous drips, and coordinating health screenings and outreach programs.

Health Visitor 

A health visitor will have many different responsibilities, which may include:

  • Establishing relationships with parents, their children and families.

  • Providing support to parents during pregnancy, when their baby is born and after (up to five years old).

  • Identifying risk factors, vulnerability and any other areas of concern, e.g. abuse or neglect.

  • Assessing children’s growth and supporting parents with their development needs.
