Substitute School Nurses - Page 2Register Today!
- Jan 25, '06 by ChilenurseHi,
in my school I`m alone at all. So nobody to help or substitute.
2 years ago I was 4 weeks out (sick leave) because of a operation myself. That time the school ask me to look for somebody, what I did. It was a coleger from my old work in the hospital. She replaced me for 2 weeks. The other 2 weeks was nobody here.
When I`m sick now, no Nurse at school!!!
Since 2 years I get all infects we can get. I´m really embaresed, because it`s pretty often.
But now, with 42 years, I realiced that I have to take care about my self to. So if I have to stay home I do!!!
Here in Germany the health system is different then in the States. We do not have just a certain days of sick leave. Can be any number of days, but always after 3 days we need to bring the medical certificate from the doc.
And if you are a mother, you have 4 days sick leave for each child with any trouble. Beside that you can take 10 more days (if child under 14 years), but then the salary is less, but you get it back from you health insurance.
Both cases just if both parents work.
So, I guess not big different between the countries with this subject!
Greetings from Frankfurt

- Jan 31, '06 by nurturing_angelI tried to be a school nurse sub once. First day I was to be trained I arrived to find out that the nurse was out sick and I was stuck. I should have just left but the office staff begged me to stay saying that they would do the meds, etc. and I only needed to be there for emergencies and sick kids that presented to the office. I ended up doing it all and I was terrified all day. I never went back! I still have a interest in school nursing but am reluctant to try to train again.
- Feb 3, '06 by MWCSDRNI have been doing substitute nurse work for 2-1/2 years in our school district. We can only call in nurses who have been Civil Service and board of education approved for our school distrct. So there is only one other nurse and myself as substitutes for our three schools. And now I am working daily as a nurse on a few bus runs, so that really limits what time I can give to the school buildings themselves (and there is no one to cover me if I can't make the bus runs!)
I do have to say that I absolutely love working with the schools as apposed to working in the hospital. I am getting paid pretty good to be a sub because they know we are few and far between.
- Nov 7, '11 by kickboxchicDoes anyone know how to get on the school nurse sub list? I'm in Monmouth County NJ
- Nov 13, '11 by tweetyRNI thought I responded to this, not sure what happened to it...
I looked on the districts website for employment and applied there or followed directions to send resume, etc.
I also applied through a website specifically for educational employment. The one I use is specific to NY state, maybe NJ has a similar one?
- Nov 13, '11 by FlareNJ is district precific. Contact the districts you are interested in subbing. You will be required to be fingerprinted by sagem morpho - which costs about 75 bucks (and i think you need to do this individually for each district... but maybe not if its around the same time) you will also need a NJ sub certificate - costs another 75 bucks - but is good for the whole state. The districvt you apply to can help you with the paper work for that. Finally, you need district approval at a meeting. Usually just a formality.
