Resumen

RODRIGUEZ-GOMEZ, Rodolfo. The origins of community nursing in Latin America. Rev. Univ. Ind. Santander. Salud [online]. 2017, vol.49, n.3, pp.490-497. ISSN 0121-0807.  http://dx.doi.org/10.18273/revsal.v49n3-2017007.

The importance of nursing activity directly with the community has been invaluable in the development of nursing. Those actions apparently isolated from who attended the community in their homes constitute an enormous tissue that has given deep meaning to the nurse activity and support to different paradigms of medicine and public health. Of notable relevance is the deep link of this branch of nursing with different social processes according to the historical context and particular situations of each country in Latin America. The so-called community nursing has been faithful reflection of the crisis of health systems in different times. Besides is a solid axis that has contributed in the social construction and the formalization of nursing as a worthy and respectable profession whose development is based on the search for new ways to benefit the art of nursing and health of the community.

Palabras clave : Community health nursing; public health; nurses; health promotion; visiting nurses.
