for those nurses who don't see a ton of students a day....

  1. 0 Do you ever run out of things to do? I find that I am finished charting, ice packs are made, everything is organized and put in it's place, and things get pretty quite (some days). What do you do on slow days (not that I am complaining)?

    I read allnurses.com.....

    I try to get get caught upon vision and hearing (especially my coded kids).

    I review my emergency plans, thin out charts, update information.

    When I can I try to get into the classroom (rarely does THAT ever happen)

    But I also surf the web looking for training opportunities http://www.emsworld.com/ is one that is geared toward , uh, EMS but there are great links to training and medical information regarding the prehospital patient.

    I use Medscape. I look at other state schoool nurse websites NY has a super one with lots of forms and ideas.

    Hope this helps
