Quote from danceluver@exnavygirl-RN: How did you find the job that you are currently at? Where did you search for a job with pregnant teens and infants? Websites? Something i'd be greatly interested in and would love some friendly advice when i need to start the search

I've been a PHN for about 2.5 years and also love it. I think it's one of those jobs you really have to want to do or your going to dread going to work every day. It's certainly not the traditional job nurses take, but in my (probably very biased) opinion it's one of the most rewarding.
