New District Nurse

  1. Hi Everyone!

    I recently got hired as a District Nurse for a mid-sized school district. I have some school nursing experience through some great clinicals and one year of med-surg/ortho experience. I bought the school nurse textbook and am enrolling in a credential program, but is there anything else I can do to prepare for the fall? What should I study, buy, or practice? Are there resources anyone would recommend? I have three elementary schools and one jr high.

    Thanks for the input!

    Join the NASN and your local School Nurse Organization as well. NASN has a great book selection and so does School Nurse Supply and School Health. Good luck!

    Thanks kenderella89, I did that this morning =) I think it'll help!

    Jfoss, they asked a few about emergency response, IEP's, and listening skills. Browsing the threads here and looking up terms really really helped. My husband is a teacher, and said whenever you're stumped refer to the school's policy and procedure.
