School nurses go to school daily to teach students about medical practices, and the ins and outs of being a nurse. There are all kinds of nurses out there: Certified nursing aids, certified nurse assistants, nurse paralegal, nurse practitioner, private duty CNA, Registered Nurse, travel nurse, and legal nurse.

In order to work as a school nurse, you are required to be a registered nurse or have a bachelor's degree in nursing, also known as a BSN, with a minimum of one year experience in a clinical setting dealing with pediatrics or public health.

A registered nurse that works for schools are able to work in elementary schools, high schools, middle schools and Head Start classrooms, and even some who decide to work specifically with disabled students.

There are some nurses that provide hands-on care to the students they work with, dealing with everything from runny noses to respiratory problems and emergencies. Then there are others who specialize in hospital health care.

The median salary for school nurses, according to, was around $43,296 in April 2009. The amount they get paid all depends on where they live, their experience, education and role.
