Anyone work in an HIV/AIDS program?

Posted

I've applied for a community health nursing position that focuses on providing direct care to HIV/AIDS clients in the community. It includes testing, education, case management, prevention, etc. Has anyone done anything similar? I think this would be a great opportunity but I'm curious what the day to day would be like working with such a specific group. I like the idea of working with a very specific group but I'd like to know if anyone else has experience with this. I am trying to move from acute psych nursing to community health because I realized working with often violent patients isn't for me. Any thoughts?

Thanks!
