I currently work in a school district that hires clinic aides to assist the school nurses. Some handle the clinic by themselves, with the nurse a phone call away, while others, with a larger student population, work side by side with the nurse. I am trying to get more information on other districts which may employ people in similar situations. Can anyone help me out? I am interested in education requirements, pay scale and responsiblities. Any other information would be helpful, too.

The ed and pay for health room aides varies from state to state and district to district.
The last district I worked in many aides were former RNs who'd let their license lapse.
It requires ususally a high school diploma. Training once hired is also varied - sometimes taining all within the school district , or the empolyee is sent to training.
Pay, in my experience, ranges from minimum wage to $15/hour based more on regional pay scales than education or experience. The average is between $8 - 10 / hour
