advice!!

  1. 0 Hello,

    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!!

    Thanks,

    Kerri
