In my area BSN is required for a LOT of school nursing jobs. I realize the difference in the scope of practice for LVN/RN at the bedside. What I don't understand is why schools are requiring BSN for school nursing-- it seems to me that LVNs are well within their scope in a school nurse setting... there is no hanging of blood, etc..
I realize the difference in education, etc. etc. etc... but it seems like the pay grade for school nursing isn't wonderful- and I'm trying to figure out if it's worth it to go the route of school nursing financially when I get a BSN. (I'm drawn to school nursing for having the same schedule as my kids do)
Also- do you guys tend to have side jobs in the summer to supplement income??
