I will soon be leaving the hospital for a public health nurse position. "Excited" is not even close to what I'm feeling about this opportunity; however, I have zero experience in this area. I was told the orientation will take some time because there is a lot to learn, being that Im inexperienced. This location focuses on family planning, HIV testing, OB/GYN, and more. Does anyone know in general what a PHN does in this capacity?
Thanks for taking time to read!

Are there any nurses out there that only had 6 months of med-surg experience before working at their local health department?
