Public Health LPN's

  1. I have an interest in Public Health. Does Public Health use LPN's or do they mostly require RN's? Appreciate any info.

    In my area, public health nurses are RNs with their BSN. I live in the pacific Northwest. Hope this helps.

    Per California BON: Public Health Certificates are ONLY granted to RNs possessing a BSN. That is the only time that one is allowed to APPLY for PHN. It's not automatically granted just because you have a BSN.
