A geopolitical community is defined by Maurer & Smith
(2013, pg 396)  as “a spatial
designation, a geographical or geopolitical area or place. It can either be
formed by manmade boundaries such as a street, bridges, highway, or by natural
boundaries like mountains.


I live in Philadelphia, PA and my boundaries are set by the
Bensalem area. Phenomenological community is where I liv. I live in a middle
class working neighborhood with stores and  twin houses. The families have children
ranging from newborns to teenagers. 
Neighbors are to themselves, quiet suburban area.. My neighborhood is a
bit diverse with plenty whites, Asians, Indians, blacks and hispanics. A
phenomenological community exists because the people in it have a common
interest. All of us live in a geopolitical community and many of us are part of
a phenomenological community (Maurer & Smith, 2013). For instance, my job
is where I work, I have friends as well as coworkers there and we all have one
common goal, to take care of our patients.


Challenges for nurses may arise when dealing with a
community that has a high crime rate, cultural differences, language barrier
and other issues as opposed to another community. The nurse need to gather data
and use theory such as community as Partner model and energy model.  Which is used to conduct community
assessment. Both views see the community as a network (Maurer & Smith
2013).  If the nurse utilize these
models, it will address certain issues and concerns in the community. Looking
at the community with these models are able to determine where the needs are.
It’s important to understand customs, beliefs and use community strength when
planning an intervention for community.
