Abstract
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Council of Nurses (ICN) have been consistent in their call for nurses to be involved with Primary Health Care (PHC). This paper will demonstrate how an innovative partnership between the School of Nursing, Flinders University of South Australia (FUSA) and Noarlunga Health Services (NHS) has been instrumental in developing an undergraduate nursing curriculum which has the potential to guide future nursing practice. The Community Enrichment Project (CEP) has been an example of health promotion in practice and demonstrates how a PHC philosophy can permeate all levels of health care.
