      school nurse career outlook:  
      The demand for all types of nurses is expected to increase significantly over the next 10 years.
      In general, the more training, certifications and experience a nurse has, the more demand there will be for his or her skill set.
      According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, there is an increasing need and demand for school health services.
      Today's students have more diverse and complex health problems, as well as problems caused by immigration, homelessness, divorce, remarriage, poverty, substance abuse and violence. School nurses play a critical role in coordinating school responses to all these issues.
      Job demand positively affects salaries, schedules, job openings and the availability of training institutions and government grants for education.
      These reasons, coupled with the fact that nursing is a rewarding profession, make today a great time to become a school nurse.
