I have seriously been researching a post-master's certificate as a public/community health CNS. I have been corresponding with several program directors. I was told today by one program director that the public/community health CNS option no longer exists. However, the ANCC website states that it is still an eligibility option. Does anyone know any public/community health CNSs in their areas? If so, what master's/post-master's programs did they complete? I am already a family nurse practitioner, so I have taken the major courses according to the new APRN Concensus Model. I have been working as a school-based NP and rediscovered my love of public health nursing. I think that it will be beneficial to obtain certification as a public/community health CNS since I would like to work in some capacity for my state department of public health and teach community health to undergraduate nursing students. Any advice/suggestions are welcome! HELP:confused:!!!
