    Hi Everyone,

    I love nursing. What I like most about it, is the ability to be an advocate for those who don't have anyone, or few people who care. I also enjoy patient eduation. Currently, I'm working as a Correctional Nurse which offers a load of challenges. Wanted to expand my horizons and try my hand at Public Nursing, but don't know where to start. Can anyone give me some suggestions. I live in south jersey. All the good I've heard about public/community nursing sounds great! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Take care.

    Have you checked the job board of your county's health department? The public health association of your state? I know that my county often advertises for public health nurses, and you don't always have to have experience in the field. They do require a BSN, though - not sure of your degree.

    Good luck!

    OP, check out your state's employment website. That's how I landed mine. No experience in PHN required, but it did require a BSN.

    That's really lucky for you. British Columbia doesn't have that, especially with Fraser health or Vancouver costal. It always needs at least of 6 months recent experience, sigh.... So is OP ? Stands for Ontario province?

    Hey Gang. Just want to give a quick thanks for all your prayers, kind thoughts, and support. I had an interview today at a Neighborhood Health Center. It looks very good. Wish me luck!
