    I recently applied for a job at a high school. School is looking for an lpn to be a health paraprofessional. The job description clearly states I would be following doctors orders, tube feedings, transporting students safely, etc. I think they add paraprofessional to the title because the job description also states that we may be asked to help out in the classroom with clerical duties, etc. There are many forms of nursing. If this type of nursing makes you happy, I say go for it! I'm certainly interested in the same thing. To be on my kids schedule, summers off with a paycheck. I've been an lpn in peds home health for 2 yrs and I'm ready for a change. I'll still work home health prn. Good luck!
