Sorry no one posted to your questions.....
Hope you got the job!
You didn't say what grades the job would cover, but I'll address the questions as best I can.
1. The ADHD child who comes to your office, acting out..... I would not give more meds. At the very least I'd call the Dr. office and see what they recommend, plus you can get an order to increase the meds if that's the doctor's intention. Without a doctor's order, you're kinda stuck. At least, if you do nothing, the child will not have any adverse effects! The behavior can be dealt with.
2. As the school nurse, YOU should have the last say in what is a medical issue. The teacher must be educated. This is a medical problem and must be accommodated. At the High School level, I give the child a pass that states the problem (Johnny has a medical condition that necessitates frequent bathroom use. Please allow him to use the bathroom as needed. ) If the teacher is resistant, reassure the teacher that if the pass is being abused that you will deal with it. I require a note from the parent or from the doctor before I will issue a pass. I have very rarely had a kid abuse the privilege because they know that it will be revoked and they NEED to use the bathroom.) If the teacher still resists, then the child may come to the Health Office to use the bathroom and eat. Period.
