How did you all get your school nurse job?
Listed on the school's website?
Through Craigslist, a recruiter, something else?
Did you just apply even if they didn't say they were hiring?
Do you have to know somebody?
Did you start out as a substitute?
I am an RN, BSN currently working full time 40 hrs/wk in a pediatric OR (also have previous med/surg experience). I have always been interested in school nursing (did a semester clinical) but the biggest deterrent is what appears to be the massive pay cut I would undoubtedly have to take. I probably wouldn't consider it if I wasn't at least comparable to what I make now.
But I am still quite curious. What is the first step to finding out more about this job? It's just a little daunting because it's not like a hospital where they are always looking for nurses; if a school has their one nurse, they're set. So how do you get into it?
