Public Health Nurse

  1. 0 Hello everyone! new grad here wondering if anyone has advice on what questions to expect for public health nurse interviews? I'm super nervous but hoping I land this position. Did not enjoy acute care during nursing school so I'm absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to interview for a PHN I position. Any suggestions are appreciated

    Welcome to Public Health Nursing!!! Every PHN interview I ever had included a question to assess my basic understanding of public health. I have also participated in the interview process on a panel, & it is shocking how many nurses believe public health is primary care for the poor. Be prepared to explain why you're choosing public health. Can you clearly articulate the difference between population-based services & tertiary care? Good luck!

    Great question Freckled, I too have an interview for a PHN position and was worried about what to expect. Thank you Mariebailey for the info and the link. It sounds like interviewing for a PHN position is a lot different than interviewing for an acute care position.

    It's my turn to scour the boards looking for the answer to this question. I have a few weeks to prepare, and this will certainly get me started. Thank you mariebailey for the info. Any other advice out there?
