If you are looking for a post of School Nurse then you will already be qualified as a nurse and have 2 years previous experience. You will have to want to work with children and be able to relate to them and communicate with them so that you can gain their trust when they are feeling their worst.
You would also need to work closely with parents, teachers and other health workers so communication is a key factor in terms of experience. You would need to be non judgemental and patient and be open to learning about new medical factors in order to help the school and everyone concerned.

Application for the post of School Nurse
I have seen your advert for the post of School Nurse and I would be very interested to apply.
Please find attached CV which shows my detailed experience.
I qualified as a nurse in (what year) and since I qualified I have been working (where in what capacity, patients you name it).
I enjoy working as a nurse; I have a very calm and patient manner and like to meet a variety of different people whom I am helping to treat and to whom I can make a difference when they are sometimes at their most vulnerable.
I have a very kind and caring nature, I give thought to everything I do and like to reflect that in my working life. I feel that I am very good at working with children as well as adults and can relate to them in order to gain their trust when its most needed.
I am also a very organised person who understands the importance of making sure everything is right in the medical world, detailing prescriptions and medication taken, ordering etc and am efficient and accurate at keeping detailed records.
If you would be interested in my skills and experience please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer any relevant questions.
I look forward to hearing from you in due course.
Good luck with your job hunt and let us know if we can help you with anything else.
