teaching question

  1. Hi all,

    I am fairly new to school nursing and am wondering how much teaching you give to staff as well as students. I believe I am supposed to teach puberty to 4th and 5th grade before the end of the year with the PE teacher. I also was wondering how much teaching is done for staff in terms of medication delegation (epi-pens, inhalers, etc.). I would prefer to do a small group (or even 1:1!) as I am quite nervous in large groups. Just wondering what experiences you all have in this area. Thanks for any information you may have.

    Over the years I've weaseled out of doing any classroom education. I do staff training at the beginning of each school year and as needed with changes during the year. My advice to you for any training you provide is to use "canned" programs written by others with the credentials to do so. Don't "author" any training instruction, involving health or safety, yourself.

    Thank you Old Dude! I found a good powerpoint from a reputable website about medication delegation I might use next school year. As for the puberty talk, theres a q and a and a video, hopefully I will get out unscathed.

    Our PE teachers took over puberty talks last year. It was a cause for celebration!!! Now if only I could get out of the Christmas gift and turkey dinner list thing.

    I teach sex education and love doing so. But I use a great curriculum that was not written by me and attended training for that specific curriculum prior to teaching it.
