Where do i apply?

  1. I'm curious...i was thinking of applying as a School nurse in my county but am unsure where i should look for an application. Any ideas? i'm going to call my son's Kindegarten tomorrow and ask for some direction but i thought i'd ask here as well.

    Thanks for any help!

    Stop in the main office of your school district and request an application.

    If you are familiar with any of the building principals, you could ask them for guidance, but in most districts, interviews and hiring decisions are handled by the main district office.

    Good luck!

    Depends on who funds nurses in schools in your area. In my county only about a third of the schools have full time nurses, the rest are "on call". The full time nurses are either board of Health nurses or School Board nurses (totally different contracts, hours, benefits, responsibilities, etc). A few schools appoint and pay their own nurse.
    Try your School Board and Board of Health web site - both have on-line applications here.
