The purpose of health promotion is to notify individuals about current thinking on how to live healthily. It aims to inspire people to adopt health lifestyle choices. Health promotion should be hands-on in tackling health- related challenges and issues.

I think the objectives set forth in Healthy People are a step in the right direction. They set goals that may not always be reached 100% but they are realistic and attainable.

Introduction People hope and seeks long and healthier lives. Thus, health care is the act of taking preventative or necessary medical procedures to improve people well-being. Improvement or preventative may be done with surgery, the administering of medicine, or other alterations in a person 's lifestyle. These services are usually offered through a health care system made up of hospitals and physicians. Although, the health care system is set up to reduce or to prevent disease etc., there is a gap or disparity in the US health care system.
Care should be focused on preventing disease rather than treating illnesses by working as a team and promoting healthy behaviors, resulting in patients having better health outcomes. In addition, early detection is a dynamic aspect of health promotion that is vital to preventing the chronic disease burden. In my opinion, nurses need to focus on educating patients and family members more than simply administering a medication or performing a procedure. Providing education about health to family members could be beneficial and passed on to people in the
Health promotion and health education have many similarities, despite them being distinctly different. Health promotion and health education are both very important, especially when being used as tools in the hands of different authority figures and policy makers. Health promotion and health education both advocate for health in a systematic way or as a planned application, however we learned in class that anyone can promote health, but not everyone can be a health educator when it comes to health education. Health promotion entails methods by enabling individuals to gain control over the determinants of their overall health. The prerequisites of health are addressed by developing healthy public policies.
Nurses are critical for promoting health in the society. The profession is highly flexible, since they specialize in diverse operations in the medical field. Registered nurses, for instance, are responsible for the administration of medicine and inoculations to patients (American Nurses ' Association, 2000). Additionally, these professionals observe, record, and enlighten doctors of any changes in a patient’s health. Nurses interpret and evaluate diagnostic examinations to determine an individual’s condition, as well as making the necessary adjustments in patient treatment plans on their health progress.
Personal Definition of Nursing Nursing is the act of helping those in need to care for them. Some people may not need care directly, but indirectly nurse care for them. When we educate people on importance of keeping the environment clean, or eating healthy, we are not physically caring for them but indirectly we are caring for them because staying health and free from illness prevents and protects them from becoming sick. Nurse care for people at all levels. World Health Organization defines nursing as: “Nursing encompasses autonomous and collaborative care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities, sick or well and in all settings.
When exploring what is health, it looks at the idea of an individual being free from illness or injuries (World Health Organization 1948). WHO further explains that it is the state of complete: physical, mental, and social well-being and not the absence of disease or infirmity (health context, 2018) In 1986 during Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion, WHO said health is a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living, also is a positive concept emphasizing social, personal resources, and physical capacities. There are different aspects that contribute and impact a person’s health such as their: family and friends, education or job, body, spirit and mind, and all these need to balance to ensure good health (health context, 2018).
