NYS retirement

  1. 0 I currently work at a hospital, and I was thinking of trying school nursing. I was wondering, for NYS retirement purposes, does the school year with summers off constitute one full year of credit in the retirement system? I currently work per diem at a county hospital with NYS retirement and I am accumulating years of service extremely slowly.

    Yes. I am in NY and only work 10 months/year as a School Nurse but I get 1 year of credit for the Retirement system. I spoke to my Business Office about this and they said that it is because although I work 10 months, my salary is based on a yearly June-June with me being paid out over 10 months. I am still an employee of the district during the 2 months off for summer.

    Hope that helps!
