    StarStarStarStarStar Current School Nurse in Elkridge, Maryland

    Comprehensive health insurance with a competitive cost to the employee. Part of the retirement pension plan, which depending on your outlook could be a nice guaranteed income or could change with future contract negotiations.

    Pension is still offered, however the educational system is incredibly flawed with most money and resources going to the schools with the wealthier demographics.
