School nurses oversee the emotional, mental, physical and social health of students. School nurses may work at any level of education from preschool to college. They provide students with basic health services throughout the school day. School nurses also manage students who have chronic health conditions and students with disabilities. This includes giving them medication as needed and working with parents and teachers to create and enforce care plans.
Working as a school nurse requires organization, as you will often handle many cases throughout the day and school year. Flexibility is a must because you will be treating students with a scope of needs. School nurses are required to have either an associate's or bachelor's degree in nursing. You must also be licensed as a registered nurse (RN). Certification requirements will vary by state. Certification through either the state Department of Education or Department of Health may be necessary.
