I've spent 20 years in finance, with a BS in business. I then got an MPH and am now in the first year of nursing school (2 year program). I will work and get my BSN after I'm licensed.
What is the best area for me to get experience in, in order to get a job in public health? Is it better to do my internship in a direct patient care area like urgent care or home health so I have some amount of "hands on"? Or should I request a PH placement for my internship? My concern is that if I don't get hired off my internship into PH because of no openings (NM is a poor state!) or because they want a BSN, then I will have a harder time getting work because my internship was less geared toward direct care.
Help is appreciated! Thanks.
