School Nurse Job Responsibilities

The responsibilities you’ll take on in a school nurse job are similar to those of nursesworking in hospitals or outpatient facilities, but you will work inside a school instead. As a result, school nurses work entirely with children. The main responsibilities of RN or LPN jobs in schools include performing health screens, developing a plan for student care, overseeing immunizations or other infection control methods, and acting as a liaison between school staff and parents. Ultimately, the goal of someone in a school nurse position is to create a healthy learning environment for students.

Requirements for RN & LPN Jobs in Schools

Before applying for RN or LPN school nurse jobs, it’s important to know that the National Board for Certification of School Nurses (NBCSN) requires all school nurses to have at least a bachelor’s degree in nursing. Once they have their degree, they can then take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses.

While most schools prefer school nurse job applicants to have a four-year degree, some schools will hire licensed practical nurses for LPN school nurse jobs. Like most positions in the school environment, specific licensing and certification requirements vary from state to state. In addition, returning to school to receive a Master of Science in nursing is another way to make your resume more competitive when applying for school nurse jobs.
