Field experience is integral to the School Nurse Certification/Teacher of Health Endorsement or the School Nurse Certification/Non-Instructional Endorsement through course work requirements. The culminating field experience requirement is placement in an approved school setting for a period of eight to 12 weeks under the supervision of a cooperating school nurse, a cooperating teacher of health and a college nurse/teacher of health endorsement supervisor. Admission to field experience is dependent upon satisfactory completion of course work in studies and the approval of the Division of Education. After course evaluation by an advisor, a formal application must be filed with the Office of Certification and Field Placement according to the guidelines established by the Division of Education.
The field experience for school nurses is accompanied by a one credit seminar ED 458.
