A geopolitical community is geographical location that has boundaries and be easily located on a map. The geopolitical communities are either formed naturally or made by man. Naturally formed boundaries are as result of rivers, lakes, mountains and valleys whereas man-made boundaries maybe structural in nature like railway lines, roads and can also be legally constituted to form towns, state or countries. I live in North America which is a centrally located region. We are surrounded by communities from Europe to form a large single community (Jones, 2015).
A phenomenological community is a social group that one is involved with and shares common interests, beliefs and goals. It may be family, religion or cultural who share the same values. A phenomenological community is more relational rather than geographical (Jones, 2015).
Some of the challenges faced by the community health nurses are the culture differences and language barrier among different communities. Community health nurses face stresses and burnout in their line of work. The benefits relate to fast circulation of health information to enhance health awareness to communities across the globe. Community health nurses may assume that since the community is the same as theirs they are exposed to similar conditions and problems. Each community should be accessed as a different entity. The community health nurse maybe knows the individuals may be unsafe in their care. To overcome these challenges nurses should be competent in their work including being knowledgeable with cultural differences in communities and setting of goals (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2015).
Some of health issues in my community are climate changes and release of untreated gases in the air which affect human health. To include there are emerging opportunistic diseases and the HIV epidemic that pose challenge to health security. In my community there is a minority group. Some of the minorities’ communities are exposed to higher ratesof disabling illnesses and chronic diseases than the whites. Community health care nurses should treat them equally without discrimination or negative attitude (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2015).
