Preparatory Experience For Public Health Nursing

  1. Hello everyone!

    I am a newly licensed RN, with an ADN. I am currently in an RN-to-BSN program, mainly to be eligible to be PHN certified (California).

    What area of nursing, hospital floors or public health clinics (wherein I could use my ADN and earn a living), do you think I should work in while still waiting for my PHN and will prepare me for the PHN?

    I appreciate your opinion. Thank you.

    I know this post was from 3 years ago, but Im very interested in your post. I will be graduating with my ADN next spring and really want to get into PH as well, but can't be a PHN until I obtain my BSN (I reside in california as well). What experience did you end up starting with? Are you in PH now?

    Thank you.
