Rural Nursing

Rural Nursing is available for Nurses who work with patients who may have limited access to health care in isolated and remote areas of the U.S.A. and other countries. The Nurse must possess excellent critical thinking and problem-solving skills in emergency, pediatrics, and mental health as well as be able to liaison among other healthcare providers. Please come here to discuss your expertise in this field of nursing, seek answers to questions regarding practice challenges, cultural sensitivity, as well as incentive programs available for the Rural Nurse.
