  4. Made CPS report, what now?
    I keep all records, but I've never been told to contact police. That would probably be a pretty handy thing to do, just in case a situation arises from the report.

  5. underweight kid
    I don't see any reason for the parent to be "smoking hot" over getting a letter that your child is in the 5-10% percentile for weight. It's not like we are "insinuating" anything or sticking our nose...

  9. School Nurse Salary?
    We are NOT on teacher's scale, I have 8 years' experience, and have been with the school system for 3 years, and I make (roughly) $25,000 per year. The WORST part of my job is the pay. I would love...

  12. Head Injury Complaint ~ What else could I have done?
    If she was only 10 minutes away, I think you did fine. He probably didn't feel like being dragged around or going to the gym where it would have been loud and noisy. I wouldn't worry about it if I...

  18. School nurse denies inhaler
    I don't see why it would matter if the school nurse was an LPN or RN. Even an LPN knows that if a student is in a true asthmatic emergency, to give the inhaler. That doesn't change, no matter what...
