dc.description.abstract This research study is on the acceptability of clinical community nursing skills in mobile health services. It is aimed at highlighting whether the skills of community nurses working in mobile health services at a certain area in KwaZulu-Natal are accepted by the community they serve. This was of concern to the researcher because it was discovered that a significant number of people in the community in this area flock to the hospitals, private doctors and traditional healers when there are mobile services which travel to various communities, in order to attend to the health needs of their residents. Interviews were conducted with the patients attending the mobile health services to obtain their views, especially on the community nursing skills. Observations were also conducted after the interviews by the researcher on the skills of the community nurses in the mobile health services. The observations were conducted to verify the results of the interviews. Findings from both data collection methods revealed that some community nursing skills are acceptable and others are unacceptable. Guidelines were formulated to render the mobile health services more user friendly. en_US
