Anyone have experience being a school nurse? What's good/bad about it?

June 1st, 2022

I’ve been a school nurse for 6 years now. The relationships are the best. Pay is the worst. But something about getting to KNOW and love your patients and watch them as they accomplish their goals is just soul healing ❤️ Also, as a parent (single for many years) the schedule cannot be beat. Being in “the know” of the environment your kids are being taught in is irreplaceable

The kids are great, some parents are not and won’t follow policy. The pay isn’t the best.

Pros: good rapport with kids, schedule (off holidays, weekends, summer, winter and spring break), less stress compared to hospitals
Cons: Pay, difficulty parents/staff sometimes
