How to Become a School Nurse

The School Nurse Certificate education will prepare graduates for leadership in community health education as well as enhancing school health education programs for children. Course content in the University of Phoenix School Nurse Certificate program will include the role of the school nurse, care delivery, community education, and law and ethics related to school nurse practice.
