Background: The Association of Community Health Nurse Educators (ACHNE) developed research priorities for public health nursing in 1992 and in 2000. In 2006 the ACHNE Research Committee was asked to update and revise the 2000 ACHNE Research Priorities for public health nursing. Methods: A review of public health nursing research abstracts (n=485) from seven selected nursing journals was completed to identify progress in addressing the 2000 Priorities, determine research methods used, health issues and health behaviors addressed, and demographics of study populations. Additional data gathered included research priorities from key federal funding agencies and insights from the editors of Public Health Nursing. Results: The most common 2000 topical research priority areas addressed related to health promotion, decreasing disparities, and global health. Less than 20% of the studies dealt with public health nursing workforce. Only 12% of the studies used quasi-experimental or experimental methods. Most studies involved adults or the elderly. A plethora of health issues and health behaviors were studied. The journal editors identified the need for more complex methodological approaches and longitudinal studies. These findings helped to guide the development of the 2009 ACHNE Research Priorities for Community/Public Health Nursing (C/PHN). The two overarching priorities for C/PHN research are Population-Focused Outcomes and C/PHN Workforce. Multi-site studies, clinical trials, community-based participatory research, development and/or analysis of existing large data sets, and development of valid and reliable methods to assess C/PHN outcomes are identified as key to advancing the science. Conclusions: It is imperative that C/PHN practice be evidence based. Collaboration among educators, researchers, and practitioners is needed to further the science of population-based nursing practice. The efforts of the entire C/PHN community are needed to accomplish this research agenda to keep C/PHN relevant.
