Our RN Clinical Training Program for School Nurses

example of nurse student for rn clinical training program

Registered Nurses (RNs) are among the most in-demand professions in the United States. Based on projections by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the country will need an additional 203,200 RNs each year from now through 2031. If you’re a licensed RN school nurse who’s left the clinical profession and wants to return, there is a clear path back through a Clayton State University Continuing and Professional Education (CaPE) RN re-entry program!


Many RNs have been working as a school nurse for years and now see the demand for RN’s in the clinical environment.  If that’s you, and you’re looking for a career change, you might want to take a re-entry course to refresh your clinical skills and get up to speed with the most recent licensing requirements. Although re-entry might seem daunting, a good clinical course can boost your confidence and prepare you for clinical care. From there, you will have numerous job prospects as an RN!


Whether you’ve been a school nurse for six months or twenty years, the trepidation you have is normal and experienced by many nurses who have not actively practiced their clinical skills.  CaPE offers a 40-hour didactic course and a 160-hour updated clinical training designed especially for school nurses and you will earn 20 Continuing Education Units (CEU’s).


You will practice assessment techniques and lab interpretation, as well as learn new electronic documentation, modern protocols and other compliance updates. Our expert instructors will help you feel comfortable with your clinical skills and understand how compliance standards have changed to respond to current patient care demands. 


We are looking for school nurses that are interested in this course. Contact Louise Bryant if you have questions. It’s the perfect opportunity to transition your career back into clinical care. You’ll get the training you need for the career you want!
