Hello! Please note, I'm not a nurse. I'm a EMT-Paramedic and a Teachers Assistant.
Recently, I've been pushed to do short term coverage for the school nurse (30-45 minutes, sometimes an hour) at one of my schools
, and the nurse has been gone more because she feels I'm qualified to cover.
I don't feel I am qualified to cover, and I desperately didn't want the district to make it a habit.
Any advice? Any heads up in case they do make it a habit?
(FYI I work at multiple schools, it's just one that consistently asks me to do this)

I know for a fact in my state other licensure / certification is required in my state to be a school nurse besides just being an RN. I'm aware I would be considered a medical professional, I just don't want to get caught up in having insufficient licenses, etc if something occurs that could result in legal issues.
I do not belong to a union.
