Public Health Nurses
Public health nurses are qualified and registered nurses who have chosen to undertake further training in order to specialise in areas such as health protection or sexual health.
Public Health Nurses have additional training which means they play a vital role in promoting and protecting the public’s health.
This might be by promoting healthy lifestyles and reducing the likelihood of ill-health, supporting people who have long-term illness, or preventing illness through immunisations or screening interventions.
Public health nurses are employed in a variety of settings including Public Health England, local authorities and the NHS.
