The Pulse of the Profession
Welcome to the ShiftMed blog where we discuss everything nursing, from professional insights to healthcare holidays to helpful hints for working with us.
Nurses work hard to earn their degrees, pass the NCLEX and become registered or practical nurses in their state. What happens if you want to relocate? Usually, this requires registering again with your new state’s nursing board. But if you have a compact nursing license (CNL), you can work in 25 states in the U.S. without issue.
Public health nurses strive to help members of a community live healthier lives. They work in public policy and healthcare to provide services to underserved communities. If you’ve always wanted to help people who typically face more significant barriers to healthcare, then becoming a public health nurse is a good career choice.
