Part-Time Nurse for GDS 360, Break Camp, and Summer Programs

Part-Time Nurse for GDS 360, Break Camp, and Summer Programs
Georgetown Day School, a progressive independent school in Washington, DC, is looking to hire a part-time nurse to support our extended day program, some break camps, and our summer programs. We are looking for enthusiastic, energetic, creative and qualified individuals who will understand and support the GDS mission and philosophy.

Position Summary
We are seeking a part-time nurse to support our Auxiliary Programs. Georgetown Day School’s GDS 360 Extended Day Program provides a daily enrichment opportunities for students in grades PK-8th grade throughout the duration of the school year. On average about 180 students participate in GDS 360 per day. During the summer, GDS runs various camps and classes for students ages PK-12th grade for about 9 weeks, serving between 30 and 100 children a day. In addition, GDS runs school break camps on days when school is not in session for teacher work days and over some holiday breaks. Ideally, the nurse would also work occasional break camps. While the nurse’s  primary responsibility is to provide direct health care to the student participants, we are fortunate that the afternoon and summer has often been a quiet time from a student-health perspective. When the nurse is not actively providing health care, we will ask that they serve as an additional supervisor for children in the daily activities where injuries are most likely to occur and/or to support the program in administrative capacity as needed.
