My OB's nurse once said. "Oh wow. You really do have use your nursing skills." Um... Yes?
TID tube feed, BID straight cath... Broken bones (Monday), Seizures (Monday); organizing and managing multiple immunization clinics, health, and dental screenings; education in the classroom (health & hygiene, growth & development, hand washing, diabetes, CPR); delegation to my full-time CNA; attending kindergarten round-up; assessments, assessments, assessments!!! Oh, and we pass scheduled meds too.
I just sent a kid home for minor concussion symptoms and recommendation to go to a walk-in clinic 1/2 way through this post.
But we aren't real nurses.
