Interim Public Health Nurse
Today I accepted a temporary position as the Interim Public Health Nurse for my town of residence, ten hours per week! The nurse who has been in the position is leaving after thirteen years (to become a school nurse, of all things). I am stepping in for at least three months and will be responsible for disease surveillance, Tuberculosis Case Management, immunization tracking and clinics, and other public health issues. I am excited and nervous, and could be in the running for the full 26-hour position at the beginning of 2009.
