About Public Health Nursing
Public health nursing is the practice of promoting and protecting the health of populations using knowledge from nursing, social and public health sciences.
Our nurses vaccinate children and adults against disease, track down the sources of disease, help families with handicapped children, test for sexually transmitted diseases, educate teen and first time moms, work at the Community Health Clinic, act as school nurses, and provide home health visits.
During the recent H1N1 clinics our nurses administered almost 20,000 doses of H1N1 flu vaccine!
