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!
