I'm finishing my first year of school nursing in 2.5 weeks, and I love the job. The kids are great, I love the variety, the independence and being the one and only medical expert in the building (of course there's a few teachers who think they know more than I do... they don't know what they don't know) but I'm not happy with my school assignment, and there's currently no schools
to change to in my city.
I've looked around my state and am now branching out to other states, but the pay is just so god-awful everywhere else. I'm also concerned about moving to one of these states where state workers don't pay into SS, as I've been paying into SS for years now and have been told it can really hurt you in the long-run if you stop paying in, so that cuts out a chunk of the country. And I won't touch a fly-by-night charter school with a 10-foot pole.
Any advice for where I can move to and stay a school nurse?
