As for the pregnant high school student- my answer was along the lines of "I would assure her that she could trust me and I would maintain her confidentiality and together we would sit down with the school guidance counselor to discuss what the next actions should be that would be in her best interest and I would also make sure she knew that I was available any time she needed me."
As for the student using drugs, I answered "I would gather as much information as I could so that I would have enough reasoning behind my suspicion to avoid falsely accusing a student. Once I had the information I needed, I would confer with the principal and school resource officer to plan what steps should be taken next. However, if any student, including the user, was in danger, I would immediately contact any necessary personnel to handle the situation."
As for angry parents (and I've used this one several times!!) "I feel that the most important thing is to first hear them out completely. Even if I don't agree or I think they are completely in the wrong, I will take the time to listen to them and try to understand what they are feeling. They are a parent and their child would be involved and they may have underlying concerns that I can address. I would do all I could to take care of the problem, and depending on the situation, offer them what solutions I can. If they refuse to be appeased with that, I would refer them to the school administration with a sincere apology that I could not help them with the problem."
IEP is Individual Education Plan, used when a child has a medical or behavioral issue that requires a plan to be in place to help them and their teacher make the best use of their instructional time. The 504 goes along with it (I'm pretty unfamiliar with these, even now. I was completely honest in my interview and told the principal "I'm sorry, but I'm not very familiar with those terms." He understood and appreciated my honesty. Said he had had several people attempt to "bluff" their way through that question and he knew right off that they were clueless and refused to admit it to him.)
At the end of the interview he asked me if I had any questions for him. I asked him what the population of the school was, what resources they had in place for underpriviledged children, what was his view on a school nurse who implemented new programs and lessons in the classroom on her own, how much say I would have in how I did my job, and what his expectations were.
Another thing I just thought of--he asked me how I would handle "frequent fliers"--kids who visit the clinic repeatedly. I told him that I would do my best to address any physical ailments they may have, I would look for signs of emotional, mental, or psychological stresses and if they didn't have any other reason to be coming to me other than getting out of class, I would direct them back to class and discuss their frequent visits with their parents and their teacher. I told him that it was my job to keep them in the classroom as much as possible, and making the best use of their educational time. Their job is to learn, my job is to make sure they are healthy and well and in the classroom doing their best. He REALLY liked that answer.
