Dear School nurses, 

Please  help me with any idea on campuse clinical procedures as presentation to teachers.  Am new to school nursing and don’t know where to start from.

I give my expectations for sending students to clinic:

Passes - all students need a pass
Bandaids - please use them
Diabetics - send them, this might happen, etc.
Seizures - brief first aid
Uniforms - unfortunately i'm the spare uniform keeper
Asthmatics - send them
Bleeding students - please don't let them bleed down the entire hallway right before the bell rings, give them a tissue (nosebleeds, etc)

I briefly touch on exclusion policy to to teachers, also let them know no students are to have any meds except some have inhalers or epi pen, and some diabetics (I'm high school), so if they see medications, they need to bring them to me.

If you private message me your email, I can send you the PPT presentation I gave for all staff before school started - my office hours, what is in the RN office (which meds available, where are EPI pens stored etc), necessary vs unnecessary nurse visits, what to do in case of emergency, field trip protocol. You can edit it for your needs, or just use it as a guide. This is my second year as a SN, and in my first year, I found these topics to be the most misunderstood/unclear so that's what I covered.

i forgot - also, the teachers have a first aid kit in every classroom which basically just holds bandaids, but I went over those with them (because I was pretty sick of geting 10+ visits daily for papercuts during class).
