Health Administration

The Florida Department of Health:

People First Website

For our county health departments to provide the services to the community, professional staff is needed to help ensure the needs of the community are being met. Career opportunities include business managers, nursing directors, and environmental health directors. Business managers ensure that the day to day needs of the health department are being met with budgeting and general operations. Nursing directors supervise and support nursing staff, ensuring services are rendered throughout the community. Environmental health directors ensure staff continue to educate on community and environmental health programs, maintain safe water conditions, and properly identify and report on any environmental risks.

If you have experience in these fields, or are looking for an accounting, clerical, or other professional job in public health, a career in health administration may be for you.
