Hire School Nurses

 

Many factors affect a student’s experience in school. Lessons, homework, and relationships with peers are just some examples. For students who are experiencing health or emotional challenges, a strong and supportive support system plays an instrumental role in the school environment. 

As healthcare professionals on-site, school nurses perform both health and educational services that promote the well-being and health of all students and school employees. They play a critical role in the school health program and address the needs of students and staff. 

When looking to hire a school nurse, hiring managers conduct a review with the school to learn about their requirements. How many students are enrolled at the school? How many employees and staff members are there? In addition to English, is there another dominant language used by students and teachers? Along with the qualifications and requirements, these details are essential to include in the job description, which is the first point of contact between the candidates and the school. The job description sets the tone for the hiring process. It should be detailed, accurate, and appealing to inspire candidates to apply.

The job vacancy should be announced on the school’s website, social media platforms, and posted on online hiring sites. If possible, get referrals from the school staff and employees. They might already know someone who would be a great fit for the job.

 

Responsibilities of a School Nurse 

School nurses must be physically present in school to effectively perform their responsibilities. School nurses tend to the health problems faced by children. They provide direct care to students and staff and treat = injuries and acute illnesses. School nurses assess and treat students within the scope of the nursing profession and refer students to physicians if needed and with the consent of parents. School nurses also provide care for students who need long-term management care, special-care needs, disabilities, or any chronic health condition. They communicate with the student’s pediatrician or physician and provide necessary care according to a treatment plan. 

As healthcare professionals in the school, the school nurses conduct health screenings (hearing, vision, BMI, growth), assess the immunization status of students and school staff, and even provide immunizations themselves. Depending upon the findings of the health screening, school nurses may refer students for additional tests. 

Additionally, school nurses participate in developing plans for emergencies, disasters, and ensure the school’s overall care system. They promote a healthy school environment by monitoring immunizations, reporting communicable diseases to appropriate authorities, monitoring the safety of playgrounds, and identifying potential hazards.

Lastly, school nurses counsel students, staff, and conduct wellness programs to promote health. They serve as the liaison between the school, students, and family members on health matters. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a School Nurse

Candidates for a school nurse position must have a bachelor's degree in nursing as well as a valid state license as a registered nurse and certification as a school nurse. The ideal candidate must be empathetic, a critical thinker, with excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Proficiency in data entry and computer systems is an advantage.
