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.

I was the public health nurse 18 hours a week in a neighboring town and I found it so rewarding. I got to help solve problems, do a lot of education, promote programs that I thought were worthwhile and had the ear of the administrators. Good luck!
