Back in the day, the school nurse only tended to scraped knees and sent children home that were found with fevers and tummy aches. But now today, the nurses that work in schools are known to have more responsibilities.

In this time, kids are more medically fragile and the health care field has grown substantially throughout the years. A lot of school nurses are able to care for students that have medical conditions that are more complex.

The nurse professionals at schools aren't only responsible for individual students. They are required to address the whole school about health service problems that affect their institution. He or she may also review and implement different health policies within the school.



Attending to the emotional health of a kid is another responsibility of the school nurse. A school that doesn't have a psychologist on staff means that the duties travel to the nurses who deal with counseling and crisis intervention.

Since students attend school with medical conditions like ADD, the school nurses are required to dispense prescription medications to the students. The school is required to administer the correct medicines in order to keep students healthy.

The average annual salary for school nurses, according to Salary Expert, is between $60,000 and $70,000. The salary is based on where the nurse is employed.
