Illinois Public Health Jobs

The amount of nursing jobs in Illinois continues to grow. Like most states, Illinois is struggling with a significant shortage of nurses. To keep up with demand, Illinois will need to increase the number of nurses graduated annually from 4,000 to 6,000 by 2010. This is due to a projected shortage of 21,000 nurses statewide by 2020. Although two-thirds of these vacancies will be in the Chicago area, there is a major need for nurses throughout the state.

Public Health

Public health nurses work to improve the health of a community, rather than focusing on the individual. Programs they work on include traffic safety, obesity, climate change, chemical exposure prevention, emergency preparedness and more. Public health nursing organizations include the American Public Health Association (APHA). Public health nurses come from a wide range of specialties or can be credentialed in public health specifically. The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) maintains the Advanced Public Health Nursing (APHN-BC) credential program, formerly known as the Clinical Nurse Specialist in Public/Community Health credential. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses. The median registered nurse salary is $62,450.
