Public Health Nursing Practice Council
The Public Health Nursing Practice Council (or PHN Practice Council) is a collaborative effort between local health department PHN experts and MDH PHN Consultants, which addresses nursing practice issues collectively and systematically in order to develop recommended PHN practice guidelines and tools for PHNs to reference and utilize within PHN practice.
Every other month, the PHN Practice Council invites public health nurses around the state to engage in discussions about different topics in public health nursing practice: Public Health Nursing Practice Discussion Topics
