Application Process

  1. Complete an application in our Online Job Portal. All applicants MUST complete an application in the Job Portal even if you have previously completed an application in the old system. Be sure to complete all questions thoroughly and accurately. This includes all prior work history, three current/prior supervisor references, and employer questions. We will only consider complete application packages.
  2. Provide proof of education/licensure. Diplomas and licenses must be attached.*
  3. Provide three references using the Frederick County Substitute Reference Form. References must be provided by your most recent supervisors and reflect employment covering the last 5 years.  If you have limited or no work experience, we may accept references from professors or volunteer supervisors. 
  4. Once all information is complete and required documentation is attached, submit your application to the substitute nurse job posting. We will review all applications and contact those candidates who best meet our requirements to schedule their orientation.  
Submitting the application and forms required to be a substitute nurse does not guarantee employment. Hiring decisions will be made based on qualifications to include work history, educational background, references, and substitute needs within the school system.
