As the health care delivery system moves from acute care settings to community-based services, nursing education must initiate students’ abilities to function within a changing system. Community Health Nursing focuses on health care to promote quality of life and health care of communities and populations and is a great fit for service learning. In this regard, students of final year BScN IV organized a Health Fair under the supervision of Ms Alia Nasir, Principle ZUCON and Ms Ashraf Valliani, Faculty ZUCON at Primary Health Centre, Sikandarabad Colony on Thursday, July 19th 2018. The event was highly appreciated and admired by Dr Fatima Jahangir, HOD Family Medicine Ziauddin Hospital.
