Public health nursing in general emphasizes case finding and follow through, health guidance and teaching and liaison with community health and related services. Positions in this area provide direct and/or indirect nursing care oriented toward maintaining health and preventing illness, as well as toward treatment and cure.
Positions at this level are responsible for organizing and managing a specialty clinic in support of a particular medical program. This involves the scheduling of clinic activities and personnel, the inventory and stock control of supplies and equipment, the establishing of priorities in relation to clinic activities and other general management functions necessary to the day-to-day operations of the clinic and the implementation of the medical program. Positions may also develop and provide expanded community education and information programs in an effort to maximize the services offered by the clinic.
