Community Health Nursing in Saint Louis County

 

The Building Blocks Nurse-Family Partnership Program


 

The mission of the Saint Louis County Public Health Nursing program is to promote and preserve the health of populations at risk for poor health outcomes.


The program integrates the skills and knowledge of both professional nursing and public health. The program includes identification of subgroups within the community who are at higher risk of illness or poor recovery and targeting resources toward those groups, families and individuals who comprise them.


The mission is achieved by working with health related groups, community leaders, agencies and the subgroups at risk.
