Part 1: Strengths and Risks
ï‚·
Use the information gathered during your tour of downtown Promise Heights and identify 3 neighborhood strengths and 3 neighborhood risks.
ï‚·
Provide 1 rationale for each strength and each risk, for a total of 6 rationales.
The strengths of the Promise Heights neighborhood are access to affordable housing,
substance abuse/mental health services, and medical care for uninsured and/or lowincome individuals. The Promise Heights Apartment provides Section 8 housing
assistance in 50% of the units for low-income individuals whom otherwise would be
unable to afford apartment housing. Substance abuse/mental health services are
offered within both the Human Services Center and Community Center, providing
resources and support for dependent individuals to facilitate their recovery and

successful re-implementation into society. Both the Nightingale Hospital and South
Street Clinic offer care options for those who are uninsured, low-income, and
individuals with large medical bills; these options ensure all members of the
community have access to medical care and are not denied treatment based on their
insurance coverage and/or income level.
The risks of the Promise Heights neighborhood are limited access to healthy food
options, limited access to affordable transportation, and limited employment options.
The only food options within the neighborhood are a corner store, two restaurants,
and a FASTBurger fast-food joint. The corner store is the only store that provides
some healthy food options; however, these are limited in quantity and variety. The
monthly fee for a bus pass is $72, which is a considerable fee for a neighborhood with
a median family income of $26,750. In addition, the rate of owned vehicles is 1:12
people, which creates a barrier for individuals whom have to travel outside the
community for work due to limited employment options. The only two major
employment options in the neighborhood are the Nightingale Hospital and the Burns
Textile Factory. Through providing only two major options for work, most individuals
may need to travel outside the neighborhood for employment, which adds additional
costs related to transportation.
Part 2: Community Health Problems and Correlates
ï‚·
ï‚·
ï‚·
Name one problem within this community, for example, infant malnutrition, obesity,
hypertension, diabetes, alcoholism, other. The problem needs to be something the
Community Health Nurse can do something about.
Identify 2 factors that contribute to the problem. For example; lack of healthy food
options is related to obesity. Or, sedentary lifestyle and lack of exercise is related to
obesity.
Provide one reference related to each factor from current literature. Use an in-text
citation in this section when you reference your article.
One example of a community health problem within Promise Heights is heart disease.
One contributing factor to heart disease is limited access to healthy food options,
resulting in diets high in saturated fats, trans fats, and cholesterol (Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2019). Another contributing factor is
insufficient physical activity (CDC, 2019).
Part 3: Plan for Improving the Health of the Community
ï‚·
Identify 2 actions you would implement in the role of a Community Health Nurse, to improve the health of this community. Include the implications of the community strengths
and risks with respect to improving the health of a community in the future. Name two
outcomes you would like to see from the actions you have suggested and why they are
important to the community.

In order to decrease the risk of Promise Heights citizens developing and/or worsening
pre-existing heart disease, weekly fitness classes can be implemented at the
Community Health Center. Promise Heights currently has no dedicated fitness center;
therefore, the addition of instructor-led fitness courses conveniently located within the
Community Center can both improve the mental health of participating residents and
increase their overall physical activity. Increasing physical activity promotes
maintenance of a healthy body weight and reduction in the risk of developing heart
disease. Another intervention to decrease the risk of heart disease in Promise Heights
is educating residents on the benefits of a healthy diet by creating a presentation at
the Community Center. Educating the residents on proper nutrition will give them the
skills to make healthier food choices when both eating out or shopping at the corner
store and will reduce their risk of obesity and developing heart disease and/or other
chronic illnesses, such as diabetes.
Part 4: Reflection
ï‚·
Discuss how what you learned and experienced in this activity relates to
Community/public health nurses and community/public health nursing practice.
ï‚·
Discuss how social determinants of health impact the health of this community?
ï‚·
Discuss how what you learned and experienced could impact the way you deliver care
to your patients in the hospital and why.
This activity allowed me to take on the role of a community/public health nurse
through performing an assessment of the overall community to determine the crucial
health needs and appropriate interventions that could be incorporated into the
community to address the community health needs and promote health and disease
prevention. Community health nurses utilize the nursing process to assess, diagnose,
plan and implement community health interventions, and evaluate the effects of
interventions to identify areas of improvement. Social determinants of health
impacting the health of this community include economic instability, limited access to
transportation and healthy foods, and neighborhood crime and violence. These
specific examples of conditions in the Promise Heights neighborhood create risks to
both the physical and mental health of all residents. Poverty inhibits access to healthy
foods and a safe neighborhood and can impact an individual’s access to resources
and inhibit their overall quality of care. My experience through this simulation has
opened my eyes to the limited resources and barriers to health that some individuals
face based on their environment with which they are living. It is important as a future
healthcare provider to always recognize social determinants of health that can exist
among a population and to integrate and coordinate social and health-related services
in order to address these social determinants of health and improve the overall quality
of care for all patients.
