Welcome to the U.S. Public Health Service Nursing Web Site
The Mission of the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service is “Protecting, promoting, and advancing the health and safety of the Nation.” As America’s uniformed service of public health professionals, the Commissioned Corps achieves this mission through rapid and effective response to public health needs, leadership and excellence in public health practices, and the advancement of public health science.
The Nursing Professional Advisory Committee (N-PAC) is a committee comprised of nursing representatives (both civil service and Commissioned Corps) from all U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies (OPDIVS), which provides advice and consultation to the Surgeon General of the United States (SG); the PHS Chief Nurse Officer (CNO); and to HHS, federal health, and other leadership (such as HHS agency/program heads and other federal agencies /programs that utilize PHS nursing personnel). The N-PAC carries out its functions on behalf of all HHS members of the discipline, including contract nurses, tribal nurses, nurses in other federal agencies/services in which PHS nurses are assigned, and Commissioned Corps nursing student trainees (COSTEPS).
