Does anyone know how one goes about getting a substitute nurse certificate? I am going to be starting the CSN program at RU in the fall, but I wanted to work as a substitute in the mean time.
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Serving as a school nurse substitute is a good way to learn about school policies and procedures. To obtain a school nurse substitute certificate, you must hold a valid New Jersey registered nurse license. Contact your county office of education
for information on obtaining a school nurse substitute certificate.
