NP to work for Preventative Health
- 0Apr 16, '09 by jensfbayWhat kind of RN work or Masters should I pursue if I'm interested in Preventative health? I want to work with people who are either in their active phase of their healing or in their preventative state. I appreciate your comments. Thanks.
- 0Apr 17, '09 by zahryiaI think you want to work in a health promotion/disease prevention capacity. Because those programs/approaches don't necessarily involve clinical skills, I would think an MPH would serve you better than becoming an NP.
I think the above poster meant 'behavioral health'.
You could always take a 'preventative health' approach to your patients if you became an FNP.
