Healthy food choices are vital to preventing illness, particularly chronic illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease. Nurses work in a variety of healthcare settings, not just hospitals.

Nurses who work at schools or community centers can often provide nutritional education to the public to prevent chronic conditions.
