We often consider how community health nurses can support vulnerable populations. For this self-reflection, complete the following:
- Identify a vulnerable population in your community and internationally.
- What resources are available to service these populations’ specific needs?
- What gaps or areas could be better addressed?
- What policies may affect these vulnerable populations?
Then, explore what unique assets or perspectives vulnerable populations can provide to nurses. Reflect on how you, as a professional nurse, hope to improve individual and social factors that contribute to vulnerability in populations.
