School Nursing at college health center

NRSKarenRN specializes in Vents, Telemetry, Home Care, Home infusion.

Any school nurses working at a college?  Position open in my area at large university with established health center, several MD/NP's/RN's.  Looking for pro/cons.

I retired from a college student health centre a few years ago. It was a great job.  Upbeat atmosphere.  Mostly young, healthy patients.  Great benefits.  Academic schedule which can be a mixed bag.

The drawback was below market wages.  If you need the bucks this can be a problem, as well as having to scramble for hours during academic breaks.

If you're in a position to not need the best wages, I would highly recommend this line of work.

Thanks for info.... adding in the thought of Covid now increasing in my area,  age 25-54 due to young ones thinking their invincible.

Yes.  Actually a lot of the illnesses and injuries in that population are related to their "invincibility".

Then there's the "I need help getting rid of this cold so I can party this weekend".
