I have a question for the school nurses. I was offered a school nurse position at a
local middle school of approximately 900 students. I have never been a school nurse
before and have approximately 8 years of nursing experience. I was told that there
would be an 8 hour training at another location and then I would be expected to be
on the job. There is no nurse to train me at this time as their nurse has left. Does
this seem right? Do you think this 8 hours is enough? I know this includes the County
policies and such. Don't you think a nurse should be with me for at least one day?
Thanks for your help.
