hi, i would like to hear your stories. what are the challenges in being the school nurse? is this a great career? thanks.
Challenges in being a school nurse is different from being a nurse in a hospital setting. In school, most of your cases will not be life threatening, the challenges is that you apply your knowledge in therapeutic interventions and collaborative treatment without the help of a doctor. As for a great career, there seems not much area for you to grow as a school nurse, but it all depends on individuals as to what constitute a great career for them. As long as you'll be happy and satisfied, its really up to oneself to decide. Good luck.
