I am amidst a career crisis of sorts. Since relocating, I am looking into various jobs that work with my new life in my new state. I worked in a hospital previously and am now looking into several alternative settings. I was at the PTA meeting for my daughter's new school this evening and was talking a little with the principal. When she heard I was a nurse who was looking for part time work, she suggested I apply to the substitute school nurse pool. Apparently subs are always needed for things like trips, extra help during assessments, eye exams, etc. Our district doesn't require the certification for subbing. Anyway, I have experience working in schools (previous career as a teacher!) but I don't know a ton about school nursing. I know substitute teachers get no training and I am sure the same is for the school nurses. What can I expect? I am sure each school health office is different, but any advice on ways to prep myself?
