  1. Silly question about asthma
    Oddly, I had a child that was doing this. I even sent her to the hospital once, as she managed to be coughing to the point of vomiting. She wasn't helped by the inhaler. I am studying to be...

  2. HELP Pink Eye Question
    If they will wash their hands, it is not airborne illness. They are NOT "turbocontagious". Not everyone even requires treatment.

  3. HELP Pink Eye Question
    Pinkeye has several forms, and it has to spread by hand contact. Sending the child back to class, if they wash their hands is not an issue. Also, many schools do not exclude for conjunctivitis. It...

  4. Lice-itchy scratchy
    Hate to tell you, but this is misinformation. Lice don't JUMP. They don't have the proper jointing of their legs to do that. Parents get this sort of misinformation, and the hysteria perpetuates. ...

  5. 10 minutes and no emergency meds for seizure
    As it appears that there will be no cooperation from this mother, for whatever reason, you need to consider protecting the child, AND yourself. If I were to see seizures that did not appear to be...

  6. Is it feasible/realistic to be able to work as a school nurse well into my 60's?
    Take things one thing at a time, there will be lots of time for those decisions after you complete nursing school. Maybe you won't even want to be a nurse at all! Not everyone that begins nursing...

  7. Fluoride mouth rinse program
    I am in NY, but I had the program for 5 years. I abandoned it last year, as I was having difficulty getting teachers to buy into the program enough to give the rinse as instructed. They just did...

  8. The Political Nurse Speaks
    Save the "partial birth" abortion rhetoric- I'd like to see those that believe in it find JUST ONE REPUTABLE INSTANCE of it being performed. It is "prolife" propaganda. Most late term abortions are...

  9. The Political Nurse Speaks
    If you were a desperate woman that has no way to love or nurture this child, no means to support it, no family to help support YOU, you would make that decision "in advance". Making it illegal won't...

  10. Healthcare is NOT a basic human right.
    It is too bad that our health care system was set up to be very profitable for insurance companies, with costs rising faster than any other commodity. Many people, even if they work hard, work...

  11. Healthcare is NOT a basic human right.
    I am sure that is the reason that millions of Americans without health care coverage would want it; so they can go to the ER to have the gum removed from their hair. Do you think that insured...

  12. Healthcare is NOT a basic human right.
    Perhaps only COMPASSIONATE people agree that the fight against universal health care is an uncaring, selfish thing.

  13. Healthcare is NOT a basic human right.
    Maybe, with some luck, you won't find yourself in the situation of millions of Americans that didn't expect to find themselves without insurance, and with nowhere to turn but the ER for care.

  14. Healthcare is NOT a basic human right.
    And, with any luck, you won't end up one of the millions of uninsured Americans that have nowhere to turn but the ER for any care at all.

  15. RN School Nurse replaced with LPN. When will NYS mandate an RN in every school?!
    I am a little confused about this post. Is there an RN that oversees the LPN that replaced you? I am in NY as well. I believe that a district is NOT mandated to have a nurse of any kind. However,...

  16. Lice Policies/Help Please!
    It is pretty ridiculous to have "no nit" policies in this day and age. Nits don't go from head to head. They also may never hatch. If they are old, the child is going home for no good reason, and...

  18. Something for all you school nurses...
    I think it was a pretty crummy thing to accuse the nurse of; "planting" the kids inhaler in the child's backpack. What evidence to you have for that?

  20. Working RNs and the CNA are to blame for new graduate RN program shortages .
    It is NOT their responsibility to retire on your timetable. Don't forget, they worked through pretty lean times in nursing, as well. Pay for the RN has been historically very LOW, until the fairly...

    I think that this nurse is in violation of being HUMAN. What dreadful sort of person would do this, anyway? Whether it is in violation of legal codes, etc, is not the issue here. Should someone...
