    Maryland - $45,500/yr with 14 yrs experience pd over 12 months. I work in an Elementary School - approx 500 students. M-F 8:15-3:45 for 190 days per yr. I also get retirement but we are not on the same pay scale as Teachers. We are on the Support Staff pay scale which is lower than Teachers and not as appreciated.

    I am VERY jealous!!! I too work in TX, but my salary is under $20000/year(second year here). And d/t budget cuts there are no raises for anyone in the near future! I work here for the hours and my kids. That is the going rate at schools around here, unless you are the director of health services, and there is usually only one per district. Howe ever you can't beat a week off at Thanksgiving, Christmas Break, Spring break, and of course summer vacation!!

    GA--$30,000 (LPN) 187 days, year-round pay, 8-4 M-F and holidays off.

    I truly love school nursing, if I didn't I sure wouldn't do it because the pay is horrible.

    My son is a sophomore in high school, I am planning on going back to school and bridge to RN (if I can figure out where the money is coming from!), so when he is finished I can look somewhere that pays a little better. Moving is just not an option right now as he is in a FANTASTIC school district!!! School RNs make a little more than the RNs...

    I am in my third year of full time school nursing in Dutchess County, NY. I make 31,000 a year. I love my job, even though it drives me crazy sometimes. The convenient schedule and retirement plan are huge incentives, because the pay is practically shameful. LOL For the amount of responsibility I have as the only "medical person" in the building, I should really be making more, IMO.

    I have elementary school aged kids. I am also lucky enough to work in the same school district that my kids attend.

    Judging by the responses on here, I may be getting the lowest pay! Sad to say, my salary is approximately $18,000/year. I work 32.5 hrs/week at an elementary school with 1000 students. I am a BSN, RN.

    I'm in Maine. My pay is $39,500 yearly. I am on a teacher's contract. I get the state retirement plan, too. I do not work summers and breaks. I work in a high school of about 600 kids, and my day is 7 am to 2:15 pm. The students leave at 1:45 but we (teachers and the nurse) are expected to stay until 2:15. I stay later than that some days for meetings and such. Not a bad gig- but I did take a significant pay cut leaving the hospital. Love the hours, and like having the same schedule as my kids.

    I am interviewing for a school nurse position tomorrow. It is located in Lake County Ohio for PLSD. It is a 1:1 position with a disabled student and it pays $18.60 per hour. I am not sure if it's lower because it's 1:1 or that's what all of the school nurses make there. Kind of surprising for a wealthy town. I've seen tons of positions open for substitute school nurse and they only want to pay $70 per day and require a BSN!!! That's actually less than one would make as a substitute teacher in some areas.

    Ohio $24/hr

    Where at in Ohio?

    I shadowed a school in Trumbull County and the school nurse there makes $26 she said. I think she has been there for like 5 years she said. She started out at as a substitute.

    Same as AdobeRN and if I work Summer school, I get paid around $35/hour for the hours I work over the summer. I also work elementary and have a part-time clinic assistant which is nice. This is my fourth year school nursing. The nurses hired in my district have to be RNs with a BSN.
