California School Nurse Job Duties

California school nurses have similar responsibilities to nurses working in hospitals or outpatient facilities, but they operate inside a school instead. As a result, school nurses work entirely with children. Their main responsibilities are 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 a California school nurse’s job is to create a healthy learning environment for all students.

California RN & LPN School Nurse Job Requirements

The National Board for Certification of School Nurses (NBCSN) requires that all California school nurses 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 their school nurses to have a four-year degree, some schools will hire licensed practical nurses (LPNs). Returning to school to receive a Master of Science in Nursing is another way to make your resume more competitive when you are applying for California school nurse jobs.

Like most positions in the school environment, the specific licensing and certification requirements for school nursing jobs vary state-to-state. To learn about credentials and requirements to apply for certified school nurse jobs in California, contact the state’s Department of Education.
