Under general supervision, provides a full range of public health nursing ser­vices including teaching, health assessment, and counseling services in homes, clinics, schools and community centers in connection with the prevention and control of diseases and adverse health conditions and the development of good health lifestyles.

Public Health Nurse I
 is the entry-level class of this professional series. Initially under close supervision, incumbents perform the more routine public health nursing practice activities while learning more skilled and complex work. As experience and competency is gained, practice activities become more diversified and are performed under more general supervision. This class is alternately staffed with Public Health Nurse II, and incumbents may advance to the higher level after gaining experience and demonstrating proficiency, which meet the qualifications for the higher-level class.

Public Health Nurse II
is the journey level class in this series; fully com­petent to perform a wide range of activities requiring independence and professional judgment with minimal supervision utilizing nursing practice skills to implement and oversee individual, clinical, family focused, and population based programs. This class is distinguished from Supervising Public Health Nurse in that the latter supervises specialized health projects and programs and/or performs more specialized or complex public health nursing practice activities involving the more difficult client cases.
