The Steamboat Mountain school is seeking a skilled and experienced School Nurse to join the school for the 2022 academic year. This position can be structured as a full time or part time position depending on the skills and desires of the successful candidate. Steamboat Mountain School (SMS) is a K-12 day-boarding school in Steamboat Springs, Colorado spread across two beautiful campuses. The School Nurse will oversee health & wellness across both campuses, but will focus their attention on the Upper School “Mountain Campus” to provide comprehensive oversight of all student health needs.
The ideal candidate has a current and active license as a Registered Nurse in the state of Colorado and a minimum of three years of nursing experience in a school, hospital, or clinical setting. In overseeing the daily operations of the Health Office, the Nurse will assess and triage sick and injured students, administer medications, maintain medical records, and coordinate external healthcare for our boarding students.
This is a full or part-time position with working hours either between 7:30am-1:30pm M-F for PT and 7:30am-3:30pm for FT. While we envision most of the nursing hours to be on campus, the ability to answer occasional calls from residential faculty on nights and/or weekends is crucial.
