MPH and nursing

  1. 0
    Hello all nurses! I just completed my Masters in Public Health and strongly desire to enter the nursing field due to minimal interest in research and minimal interaction with people. What I would like to know is if having an MSPH can be helpful as a nurse and if yes, if there would likely be an increased compensation for this degree and being a nurse? Also, anyone know of any specific nursing positions that employ people with public health degrees?
    thanx

    I seem to have a similar, but different problem. I'm about to graduate with my MS in Community & Environmental Health (very much like an MPH for those reading) and am considering getting my RN because of the difficulty I am having finding a job - many PH jobs require an RN. I DO know that since this is the case you could find Community/Public Health positions with an RN which are very hands-on. There are jobs in city employment and state (PH Dept.) I bet you would like once you do get an RN.
