  1. Research internships if you're not a student?

  2. Rough transition to PH from ED

    Hm.. Are you a member of your state's public health association, or the American Public Health Association? If you are the only nurse and there is not another nurse (even one perhaps at the 3 county consortium) you can ask these questions, likely the...
  3. Abortion education in CNM programs

    I have no info on any midwifery education programs on whether or not they teach it, but I would encourage any student nurse (or student nurse midwife or student nurse practitioner) who is interested in learning more about abortion care to look at the...

  5. Sexual Health Nurse

    Hi Capybara123! You can work with sexual health in a public health capacity. Many local county or regional health departments offer STD testing and treatment services, and nurses usually work within or manage those programs. Depending where you are...
  6. Understanding the Power of Nursing Specialty Certifications

    I wanted to be certified in public health nursing with the APHN-BC credential, but the ANCC retired it before I was eligible to apply. There is no other nursing-specific public health certification credential at this time and nor does ANCC seem to ha...

    I am just finishing my MPH and I found this website to be a great primer since the stats class for my BSN was 10 years ago when I started graduate school. Introduction to Biostatistics : Schedule Good luck!
  11. MSF/DWB application, interview experiences.

    I am an aspiring MSF applicant as well, so I am hoping some others will jump in to provide us with answers to your questions.
  12. Agree with above - as a suggestion, you might try calling your local public health department and let the receptionist know you are a nursing student with an assignment who would like to speak with a public health nurse. I work at a public health dep...
  13. Flu shot advice

    If you are working with children, it can help to give them some choice in the matter. They are getting the vaccine regardless, but letting them decide if they want to sit on their parent's lap or up on the exam table and which shoulder you use helps ...
  14. PHN in corrections?

    I think it would probably just be like a regular corrections nursing job then, but not having worked at such a place, I couldn't say. I'd encourage you to also reach out to the corrections nursing forum too.
  15. PHN in corrections?
