I get questioned often about the job outlook for School Psychologists. The most frequent question is, "Will I be able to get a job once I graduate?" In doing my research on the job outlook, I ran across this article from the National Association of School Psychologists. Read below what the have to say about the field of School Psychology.
According to the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), demand for school psychologists is exceptionally strong and on the rise. School psychology has consistently been rated among the 100 Best Jobs in U.S. News and World Report. Awareness of the need to provide mental health and instructional supports for children and youth in schools continues to grow. Furthermore, the profession currently faces shortages of qualified school psychologists to fill positions nationwide. There is a particular need for professionals from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. School psychology provides a stable career with growth opportunities, good health and retirement benefits, and an opportunity to positively impact youth and families.
