I am a new LPN student, with plans on getting my RN/BSN right afterwards. There is a 4 year BSN program, but if I can do my LPN in a year, and the LPN-BSN in 2, well 3 years is better than 4!
Anyways, my main goal for the future is to be a school nurse, probably a elementary/grade school nurse. I am only 20 years old, and have worked in a daycare in an elementary school for the past 2 years and love working with that age group.
I was just wondering if anyone here had any advice, or could tell me a bit more about the requirements for a school nurse. I would like to work at a hospital or possibly a clinic setting for a few years, around 5. Then once I had a family, then be a school nurse.
So any advice, suggestions, or any comments would be welcome!
In particular Id love to hear school nurses talk about their life experiences, and schooling requirements, job differences, hours and pay differences...pretty much anything a school nurse could advice me in would be great!
