Student Public Health Clinical

Jefferson County Health Department offers nursing students a chance to experience Public Health in a semester long Public Health Nursing Clinical.

Student Nurses participate in all Health Department Programs such as Well Baby Clinics, Immunization Clinics, Environmental Health including observing inspection of area licensed facilities such as hotels, motels, restaurants and swimming pools, home visits to families, Jail Health and other community health experiences.

Each semester the students complete a project related to a current need in the county such as a Family Fun Walk or a specialized Clinic.  Here are pictures of the Teddy Bear Health Screening Clinic held for Head Start Children.
