I just applied for a school nurse position at my girls school. I'm very excited, but trying not to get too excited because who knows if I'll get chosen or not. I'm qualified. I'm a BSN with 12 years of ER experience so I should be good there. Now they just have to like me!
I have so many questions. I know all the medical I'll need but it's the school system, laws, ect I need to learn. Where do you find the laws for a school nurse in each state? Do you do routine lice, vision, scoliosis screening? I remember that as a kid! How do you know what ages and how often to do those things? Do teachers and staff come to you a lot? Do you have to do newsletters, websites, teach health classes, ect. Those things I'm not confident with. What do you wear, teacher clothes or scrubs? If it's teacher clothes I'll have to go shopping!
I would love any information, advice, websites, resources, ect you might have! Especially someplace I can review the laws so I know what I can and can't do!
Keeping my fingers crossed! I'm sure I'll have tons of questions if I get the job!
