    Interview Questions

    Can’t thank u enough for taking the time to respond and give me all these questions and scenarios. I’m most appreciative! It appears my subbing days have paid off. I feel like I have seen or heard of many of these scenarios firsthand. Many thanks for the good luck wishes.

    Interview Questions

    Hi, I’m finishing up my School Nurse Cert (required in NJ) and will hopefully be interviewing soon. i understand the interview questions are very different than what you’d see in a hospital interview. I’m told it’s tons of situation type questions. Anyone have any they want to share or know where I can look some up? I want to be prepared. Thank you!

    Camp help in PA

    Alex, thank you for your detailed response and for all the great questions you brought up. My girls will be 7 and 10. The little one is outgoing, athletic and up for new adventures. The older one is slower to warm up and not sports-oriented. But she does like the outdoors - swimming, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding etc. also likes crafts and computers if that helps. So really, I am not as concerend about the 7 year old as I am about the 10 year old. Co-ed or girls only is fine - no preference. As for my working conditions, I am flexible - but would most likely prefer another nurse with me as it's my first experience with camp nursing. Also would be interested in camps that offer 2,3 or 4 week opportunities. I dwill by want to commit to anything longer in case it's not for us. Also, is it a full PA license i need? I thought I read somewhere the camp gets an emergency or temp one or something like that on my behalf. Thank you again.

    I'm in NJ where Certified nurses get paid on the teachers scale. Most schools in northern NJ where I have been looking start in the high 50's or low 60's depending on how much education you have. I think starting at $58k for example is great for working 8-3, M-F for 10 months with no weekends, holidays, nights etc. A week off at Christmas and not having to work in a blizzard are added bonuses! I sub in districts where the nurse has been there 20+ years and hit longevity pay and earn over $100k

    No nurse a month before school starts

    Hi. I'm in NJ where school nurses need to be certified. I am currently attending school to obtain my certification. I sub now but always have an eye on job openings for when I am certified. We are about a month away from school starting and I am shocked at how many positions still need to be filled. Is this common? Is there some sort of school nurse shortage I don't know about? Or is this maybe specific to NJ because they require state certification?

    School Nurse Emergency Course

    I can't open the link - do we get CEUs for taking it? How much does it cost?

    Sub Nurse Pay

    Curious what the Per Diem rates are for subs in your area. I'm in NJ. I have seen $125 per diem as the lowest and $250 per diem as the highest. The two districts I sub in are $150 per diem at one and $30/hr at the other.

    Question about sub Nurse hours

    Yes! Long term sub rate! That's what I'm looking for. Thanks so much!

    Question about sub Nurse hours

    Hi, I've been subbing in the schools for a little over a year. I get paid a per diem rate. There is a full time nurse who is going out on leave and I have been asked if I want to "fill in" for three months. heres my concern. It doesn't feel right to do the work of a full timer while being paid my paltry per diem rate. Are per diems "allowed" to work that many hours? I thought after working certain amt of hours in a pay period you are considered part time or full time. How do I ask for more money? Im in NJ if that has any bearing on anything.

    Field Trips

    I love field trips! But that's because I'm a sub and that's usually when they call me. ;-) I'm currently in school for my school Nurse Certification (it's required here in Jersey) and I just study on the bus. Some of the trips have been fun, too!
