    I left the VA to work in Public Health. Work for VA and IHS for 6 years. Will never go back to the VA..at least the one here. All facilities are different. I loved IHS and will go back one day.

    My job now is wonderful beyond words.

    Congrats on your dream job! Life is funny how it takes so many broken roads to get to where we need to be. God is amazing, and I truly believe that even if you don't pray, or even believe in Him, doesn't mean he's not there or doesn't believe in you.

    Quote from pitaya
    My first bachelor's was in public health. I went into nursing thinking it would help me with public health. Accepted a job as an RN on a tele floor to get experience. Been working four months. I hate it. I cry a lot. The day before a shift I am depressed and have palpitations. I am terrified of making a mistake. I feel stuck because I have to pay off debt from nursing school by goiYyng to a nursing job I hate. I feel like I am wasting my youth...shouldnt have gone to nursing school or else I wouldnt have debt and be stuck working an awful job to pay it off. I am so depressed...about to turn 25 and already feel like I am having a midlife crisis!!! I just didnt expect this job to be that bad. I miss public health.
    I am pursuing a public health degree with a minor in psychology. I want to get my rn degree to go into neontatal or pediatrics nurse. I am going to pursue my asn degree. Any advice

    I am a fresh graduate who just received my nursing degree and Malaysia licensure this year June. Meanwhile, I am working with a general manager in a private hospital to run a nursing home project. I never really like hospital nursing, and my boyfriend from California had Master of Public Health who works for APHA and WHO. I see what he is doing and I feel that it's very interesting. Next thing you know, I took an introductory course of public health in Chapel Hill University at North Carolina in July. I feel that it's my thing but I was very discouraged by my hospital nursing believers and lecturers. Your post just comes to me at the right time when I feel a little lost. Do I need to gain any years of nursing experience prior to taking my master in public health? I am juggling between US and Canada to get my nursing license to practice also. Any advice which is more ideal?
