Leadership and School Nursing Concentration
Overview of School Nurse Program
The program is consistent with current Pennsylvania state and national school nurse standards and guidelines. It focuses on health care management for school-aged children and is designed to prepare registered nurses to meet the health needs of children of all ages in diverse school settings. Graduates of this program meet the requirements for a Pennsylvania certificate as a Level I Educational Specialist-School Nurse. However, school nurses from states other than Pennsylvania will find the program beneficial as well.
Graduates of a Master of Science in leadership and school nurse concentration will find jobs in the following areas:
- School and camp settings.
- Supervisors or directors in public health, or other agencies.
- College level teaching in nursing at an associate or baccalaureate level. If at the baccalaureate level, you will need to consider a PhD or DNP in the future.
