Kentucky Public Health Jobs

Kentucky is doing a better job than most of the country dealing with the nursing shortage, with the vacancy rate of only 7 percent statewide for nursing jobs. Pikeville Medical Center in Eastern Kentucky recently boasted a vacancy rate of just 2 percent. These numbers can be credited to the fact that Kentucky hospitals do a good job at recruiting RNs from neighboring states, and nursing colleges have been doing a better job keeping up with demand for more qualified nursing students.

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.
