    The teachers are losing it!

    Toileting pre-k a nursing function?

    It's so interesting to hear how this is handled so differently depending on the school. I did actually volunteer to do a training which the principal replied "yes that would have to be a whole other thing but in the meantime this is how we are going...

    Toileting pre-k a nursing function?

    Oh, they used that excuse as well! This is a private school and apparently unless you have a "contract" perhaps everything falls on you. Where's my contract?! It's really a shame.

    Do You Like Being A School Nurse?

    93k for 184 days? What city is this in and what type of school? From what I’ve been reading this is astronomically higher than average school nursing pay. What is everyone else doing wrong?!

    School nurse salary non-negotiable?

    Hi all, I was hoping I could get some feedback or personal experience with this topic from the collective group. Upon my initial offer from a private school I was told the salary was non-negotiable when I tried to counter offer. There is a Staff Asso...

    1st School Nurse Interview

    I GOT AN OFFER! It is for $62,679 annually, paid out bi-monthly for the entire year for a 172 day school year. I'm getting nervous because I've never made this amount as an RN so I hoping this is a good offer? It's so hard to tell here in NYC ...
