Houston Public Health Jobs

According to recent statistics, the Houston area is struggling with an ongoing nursing shortage of 4,000 to 5,000 full-time RNs, meaning that nursing jobs need to be filled quickly. On top of this, the Texas Board of Nursing reports that nearly 3,000 hospital beds are in the process of being added to the Houston market, so demand for nurses will be even greater soon, especially those with experience. Houston is home of the famous Texas Medical Center, and its largest hospital is The Methodist Hospital.

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.
