Is there anyone out there in the public health service or have been. I'm trying to get an idea of the pros and cons. Are you required to move a lot similar to the military? Are the pay and benefits good? Any realistic information would be helpful. Thanks

I have worked with public health nurses and they seem happy. My understanding is that you don't have to move unless you want to. I was in the Navy myself and also am married to a retired Air Force guy and have moved so many times, I can barely count!!! I have also worked in military hospitals in the states, overseas, and also in VA facilities. The benefits are pretty good.
