I am considering becoming a school nurse. I have 2 years PICU and ER experience and considering child/adolescent psyche nursing. Is there any other specialties that will help better prepare me for school nursing? I really do not like bedside nursing, but love working with children - school nursing sounds challenging and fun.
Also, I live in NJ - do they only hire nurses with a school nurse certificate or will they hire a BSN and then pay for the certification?
Any advice would be much appreciated!!
