I would like to get some insight on having a background in nursing and public health.
I am a new nursing student with high hopes. I am 6 credit hours away from earning my BA in Gerontology and I will be starting a BSN program next month.
My ultimate career goal is to earn a Masters & Doctorate degree in Public Health with an emphasis on Disease research. I would like to one day work for the CDC or World Health Organization.
Many people have questioned why I have chosen a background in Gerontology and Nursing to enter into a field that is mostly Biologist and Microbiologist. My only answer to them is that I wanted to broaden my horizons...
Diseases afflict the young as well as the old. I see no reason why I can't utilize the two degrees in my quest
Are their any individuals who work in Public Health (with emphasis on communicable/noncommunicable disease research) and have a background in the nursing field or any other field out of the norm?
Where do you work and what has been your experience in the field?
