CNS's in North Carolina

  1. I was hoping the North Carolina clinical nurse specialists could share what type of role they practice in. I'm aware that the CNS's do not have prescriptive authority in North Carolina. Do you practice mostly as hospital educators or in management? I would appreciate hearing about your experiences.

    Does anyone have an autistic unit at your school. I work for an elementary school. We have a small class of autistic students. The staff in the class bring me kids constantly because they do not fell good and want me to call home and have someone pick them up. The majority of the time the student has no fever, no vomiting, no runny nose, and no cough. They seem fine to me in the clinic, but once they return to class the student suddenly is crying, coughing, sneezing, or what ever. The teachers in there get annoyed because I don't feel comfortable making parents come get there kids because they are crying. Does anyone have to deal with this. My opinion is they just don't want germs in the class.. Should i treat these kids like I do the rest of the students.
