AHISD Seks substitute Nurse


Alamo Heights ISD is in need of support from community members who have a nursing degree and who might be interested in serving our schools as a substitute for our nursing staff. Periodically, our nurses need to be away from the campuses for various reasons. We are trying to build our pool of substitute nurses to fill in when a campus nurse is away.

If you (or someone you know) is a nurse who is not currently working full time and would like to assist our schools by substituting in one of our clinics, please fill out the substitute application found on our district web page. In addition to being a great place to work, Alamo Heights ISD offers substitute nurses the highest pay rate in the area and provides orientation.

If you have any questions, please call AHISD Health Coordinator Kathi Martinez RN at 210-832-5903.
