Calling on new nurses
The safety and well-being of students is a top priority for the district, and school nurses play a big role in student health and wellness.
Because of the events of the past few years, the nation is experiencing a shortage of nurses, and this has also impacted school nurse recruitment. To address potential nurse vacancies in the upcoming school year, Human Capital Management is offering a $3,000 hiring incentive to recruit new nurses to Dallas ISD.
This incentive applies to new hires for a full-time school nurse position (Job Code 6750) for the 2022-2023 school year as well as any candidate or employee who is hired, transfers, or is promoted into this critical shortage area.
The incentive would be 50% paid in November 2022 paycheck while the remaining 50% would be included in their January 2024 paycheck. The incentive would be funded with Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds due to the impact the COVID pandemic has had on the number of available nurses to fill positions.
School nurses who worked in the district before May 1, 2022, will receive the $2,500 retention incentive and are not eligible for this new hiring incentive.
