School Nurse Duties

The role of a school nurse is important for the maintenance and success of school healthcare systems nationwide. A school nurse is a representative of the comprehensive healthcare services provided to children and youth across all types of schools, and the responsibilities must be upheld for seamless performance. A school nurse is expected to provide preventive services to children, assist with the early identification of physical or mental health problems, make referrals to health facilities for more serious conditions and take part in interventions if necessary. They can also advocate against bullying and administer basic medicines to help children heal. With the help of various resources, school nurses are an important part of a school-aged child’s life, advocating for good health in order to foster better education success. The school nurse can also develop a working relationship between the school and the child’s home in order to best ensure that any health issues are being taken care of.

School Nurse Education Requirements

Most schools will require a school nurse to have a four-year bachelor’s degree in nursing and be a registered nurse to meet school healthcare standards. While some schools will employ licensed practical nurses, the chances are much greater if the nurse has an RN certificate. Beyond the certifications, a school nurse must also have experience in a clinic or in a variety of healthcare settings, as well as at least two years of training in an acute care setting. Additionally, there are some other education and training programs that can further enhance a school nurse’s qualifications. A school nurse should be skilled in pediatric health, public health and mental health practicing. They must be able to work well with children and be a strong voice for parents.

School Nurse Job Market

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the job market for school nurses is projected to grow at least 19% by 2022, which is faster than most occupations. There are some schools that must consolidate their school nurse positions due to federal budgeting concerns – however, for a nurse with that experience, there is more than enough opportunity elsewhere.
