    Hey Everyone!
    I want to get into PHN and Community Health nursing. I work in critical care right now and acute care prior to that but always in a hospital setting. Ive never been an acute care person but in order to gain experience in nursing I was forced to take hospital jobs. I don't like my job now and Im ready for a more satisfying career. Can anyone help me figure out how to get a set into PHN?

    Any tips are appreciated! Thanks!

    I got my PHN job through contacts. A doctor knew me, heard about the job, and thought I'd be "perfect" for it. I don't know about perfect, but I'm certainly happy. Talk to nurses at your county's health department, and keep your eyes and ears open.
