Texas School Nurse Job Duties

The Texas school nurse job duties are very similar to the responsibilities of nurses in other environments, like hospitals or outpatient facilities. However, school nurses’ patients are primarily students, and the facility they work in is a school.

Texas school nurse job responsibilities 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. Generally speaking, one benefit of choosing a school nurse job is that you can design your own summer work schedule—whether enjoying summertime off from your full-time nurse job, jumping into a Texas summer school nurse job or exploring school nurse travel job opportunities.

Texas RN & LPN School Nurse Job Requirements

Before applying for school nurse jobs in Texas or anywhere in the country, it’s important to know that the National Board for Certification of School Nurses (NBCSN) requires school nurses to have at least a bachelor’s degree in nursing. Once this degree is acquired, nurses can 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). ProCare has openings for Texas LPN school nurse jobs, LVN school nurse jobs, and RN school nurse jobs, so you can find the Texas school nurse opening that best matches your certifications.

Because school nurses work in a school environment, additional licensing and certification requirements for school nursing jobs vary. We recommend researching the credentials required to apply for certified school nurse jobs in Texas by contacting the state’s Department of Education.
