I have been told that a BSN is required per state law to be a DON of an Illinois health department. I have tried to find job qualification in the IDPH guidelines, but I cannot find this information. Would you be able to give me some direction or tell me somewhere else to find this information?
Dear Donna replies:
I would suggest that you contact the Illinois Chapter of the American Public Health Association at http://www.ipha.com for this information. Sometimes you have to talk to a few people to get to the right person to answer your questions. APHA has a public health nurse section, so try to find someone affiliated with that.
