Can't even get our school board on board for Narcan...
Any kid that falls asleep?
Considering the strong majority of my patients are not Christian...not much as it would offend the family and likely cost me my job
They test any student grade 7-12 who falls asleep. Always interesting when a kid actually has narcolepsy. Fortunately the nurses have the authority to use discretion. They have a screener (bed time? Ate breakfast/lunch? What was going on in class..darkened room with movie, or bright lights for a science experiment.) then an algorithm for suspected drugs of abuse use (personally, physical appearance, mental state, vitals, pupils). They can do a seven panel screen in the nurses office (only athletes are subject to random drug and steroid check right now. But the county is looking for a county wide policy for random checks with the increased overdoses & issues lately).
the nurses were also all given narcan by the county prosecutor for staff student or visitor use at no cost. (County will replenish).
Start with what you think and know and we can guide you
Graduation from nursing school is a pre-requisite to apply for a nursing license by examination and take the nclex.
Yes. There have been incidents where a candidate claims to have been in class but their passport indicates they were out of country at the time. You can't be in two places at once so now the agents must ask for this information also
I understand the compassion but there ARE serious boundaries being crossed here if these are indeed your actions. If it's just prose, then it's beautiful.
So saying "Ok" is general terms and thus not protected?
okay....so what does posting this here accomplish? People online are stupid and say stupid things...this includes all professions. As far as thinking about notifying her employer...
A friend of mine who worked at a school district and coached there as well made a dumb comment on another friend's political post. Somebody screenshotted it and sent it to his school. He lost his job and coaching position. Totally ruined his life because somebody felt it unprofessional enough to send it to an employer.
So yes, moral of the story you should always be professional online and not say anything that could jeopardize your career. Do you think this young women deserves life altering consequences because of what she said. Just some food for thought
Yes and it would likely violate your employers policies. Other family members might object. Just don't do it.
Keep social media and work separate
Wearing it around your neck is a good way for your skin oils to rapidly degrade the tubing
This isn't FB/twitter/instagram hashtags are meaningless here.
This reads like serious professional/personal boundary issues. We are not surrogate family to be kissing "old as (explicative) patients". Especially in Geri-psych.
Almost no schools accept transfers especially short programs like PN . Exactly zero methods to become an LPN in NJ without graduating from a school of practical nursing. Almost finishing is not sufficient The only state might let you challenge might be CA but the license would not be endorsable to any other state.
This is better discussed with your PCP, facility ID dept and likely reportable to occupational health. I hope you get the answers you seek
