  2. Tummy Ache ideas??!?!?
    I always do a medical referral after 3-4 visits for the same complaint. I also speak with the teacher and get the counselor involved. I agree that many of these kids do have psychosocial problems and...

    Is it me or are children today getting whinier and whinier? I am just astounded at the missed class time for paper cuts and tiny drops of spilled white milk on a white shirt! Kids get upset when...

  6. New job, really need advice:)
    Just my 2 cents. When I am in the middle of a "school nurse dilemma" I ask myself this question - How would i handle this situation if I still worked on the floor of a hospital. That being said. If i...

    Purple Scrubs - stealing this one from you, it's a good one! - 1. Try to be less jaded with the frequent fliers and assume that there really is something bothering them, be it physical, emotional,...

  8. New job, really need advice:)
    Sounds like they want a 2 for 1 special to save money! Nurse to 800 kids IS a full time job. 6 diabetics ALONE will take up a lot of your time. Do you have an aide trained to cover for you in the...

  9. How do you respectfully tell a teacher ENOUGH ALREADY!
    I definately agree, I always talk to the teacher first. At the beginning of the year, I give all of my teachers a list of what is appropriate to send to the clinic and what is not. Attached is a...

  11. My district has gone from 14 nurses to 3.5 in 5 years
    The phrase that frightens me most is "and the job description hasn't changed in that time." It is IMPOSSIBLE for 1 nurse to do the same work as 14. Why don't we go ahead and have just 1 math teacher...

  12. Scabies? Letter to all students or not?
    Ditto. 2-3 cases is not an OUTBREAK in my book. Sending letters home tends to throw everyone in panic mode, which is just unnecessary.

  13. Training non-nurses for shot records
    I would just hate to hear the backlash of trying to bring students up to compliance. "But that other 'nurse' said everything was fine." I just feel that the more we delegate to non-medical staff,...

  14. New to board and seeking guidance
    The daycare is a separate entity from you, your school district, and the teacher. I believe any health communication and planning for this student should be between the day care facility and the...

  17. Have you ever noticed..........................
    That you will not see a student all year. Then, they have a valid illness or injury that you send them home for and suddenly they are a frequent flyer. It is like a light bulb goes off or something....

  18. Heartbroken
    I see a lot of lack of supervision by AND a lot of bullying between the adults in campus' I have been to. What can we expect, when we set such bad examples ourselves?

  20. districts cut RNs
    I agree, if you work around kids daily......you should be CPR / first aid trained. I at least, give everybody in my buiding a brief overview of the AED - how it works, where it is located, etc. When...

  21. districts cut RNs
    I am assuming you are requiring your aides to be CPR / first aid trained. Not the case in the district that I posted my response about! I certainly did not mean to step on your toes.
