  1. A public health nurse helps with the community instead of rotating patient like bedside nurses. I think this appeals so much to me because of my goals of becoming a RN and minor in public health. I would love to help out the community and become part of a program to help the public.

  2. How many years experience bedside do you recommend before moving into a PHN position? Would you not recommend going straight into public health nursing? Or is it okay to start in public health nursing if you are passionate about it?

  3. Hi Mayela,

    Your videos are so necessary and I always look forward to your content!
    I am Pre-Nursing and know I want to be a PHN, however, I am trying to decide how to gain experience.
    Experience that will help me when I apply for BSN programs; what experience do you recommend I look into if I know I will eventually work in PHN?
    Primarily, I've read people recommend becoming a CNA.

    Thank you!

  4. Sounds super interesting! I am about to graduate in May and I really love advocating for minorities and the more vulnerable. I feel like the hospital is a way many people go and areas like this one if not often discussed. <3 Did you say it is usually suggested to have some hospital experience or RN experience in general? Thank you for sharing and the awesome work you do, you're much appreciated!

  5. Hi, I am currently double majoring in pre-nursing and public health, however my gpa for pre-nursing won’t be competitive enough for the nursing program. Do you think it’s still possible to become a public health nurse?

  6. Great video! I worked for Public Health in a community/county in Virginia that had a high Hispanic population. They were migrant workers that worked seasonally for the local apple orchards! I LOVED my job. It was early in my nursing career (2008) and after a year I left to finish my RN to BSN program and to also get more hospital experience. I was so lucky they hired me with only 3 years of nursing experience (mainly in psych and dialysis). I regretted my decision for leaving and have been trying to get back in to PHN. I know the bedside is NOT for me and I love community health and patient education. I have been working in Case/Care Management for 5 years. My local health department had a position posted in September. I applied and interviewed in October. I was offered the job and I accepted!!! I’m so excited!!! I foresee myself staying in this role until I retire. It’s a state job and my district covers 4 counties as well. I took a pay cut (not major) but I’m just overjoyed!!! There is nothing like Public Health and I’m so glad you have brought light to this role for nurses. I’ve been a nurse 16 years and have done a lot but nothing compares to Public Health ❤️❤️

  7. I'm currently in Nursing School in LA and I had a couple questions. When you say we need experience as an RN, do you mean we need bedside experience, or just general experience? Also I am interested in fitness, educating people about fitness and nutrition; do you think Public Health Nursing covers those needs? Really informational video!
