The goal of population-based nursing is to provide evidenced based care to targeted groups of people with similar needs in order to improve outcomes (Curley & Vitale, 2016). This approach targets not just an individual, but all the people that populate a specific area having a tremendous impact on future generations. Individual focused interventions are targeted on the specific individuals challenge and independent situation. A holistic/biopsychosociospiritual (BPSS) intervention examines the five scales(impaired functional status, physical, psychological, social, and spiritual symptoms) necessary to view the full perspective of all the contributing variables that impact a persons life. Applying this perspective to an individual regarding their hypertension would allow a health professional to empower the individual to a new and different lifestyle.

3. Nursing informatics involves nursing science, information science, and computer science all designed to facilitate the management and process of nursing data, information, and knowledge with the primary aim to inform and support decision making as well as maintain delivery of care (Moen & Kundsen, 2013; Chamberlain University, 2018). Information is a structured data formulated in different frameworks or situations. Knowledge is a data synthesized by formulas or delineated relationship while data are raw facts seen as the essential elements or building blocks used to compose knowledge or information. The interrelation between the components of data, knowledge, and information signifies the vital attribution to nursing evidence (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2015).
