School nurses are vital partners who contribute to the health and well being of students, families, and communities. The School Nurse Certification program at Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden prepares registered nurses to fill the increasingly important role of school nurse across K-12 educational institutions in New Jersey.
School Nurse Certification
In combination with clinical practicums, students enrolled in our intensive summer program learn the skills and theory that keeps our children healthy, fit, and ready to learn. We educate school nurses who become keenly aware of social determinants of health that impact students and their families, and who will play a pivotal role in sustaining the well-being of communities.
School Nurse Innovation
Thanks to a $200,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden will bolster its mission of educating school nurses to address the complex and increasingly demanding health needs of students and their communities within the state. The New Jersey Nursing Initiative (NJNI) award granted in 2016 – one of only five given in the state – will help fund an innovative expansion of the school’s post-baccalaureate School Nurse Certification Program to a graduate-level program in nursing practice with a focus on population health.
