My best advice is get to know the other nurses in your district, they will be an invaluable resource to you. www.schoolhealthservicesny.com is an excellent website, I use it regularly.
School nursing as a first job out of school may be difficult as your assesment skilles may not be developed yet. You will learn as you go and utilizing allnurses.com will help also. If I can be of any assistance, PM me....Good luck
