Well, I got the job I wanted!!!! I am going to be working at a great health department and I am super excited.
I would like to read a book (or books) that will give me some insight and inspiration going into this new endeavor. Something like what Three Cups of Tea, Mountains Beyond Mountains, or Freedom Writer's Diary did for their specialties. I would be prefer a memorior from an experienced Public Health Nurse that would be fun to read but give nuggets of wisdom. I would also be interested in textbooks that were useful in tips for counseling teens, health behavior change, working in rural populations, and the joys and challenges of public health. Any ideas??
