Hello everyone,

I am creating a position that is essentially like a "School Nurse Consultant" for lack of a better name.  This nurse would come on a part-time basis to schools do any number of things to assist the LPN who is there.  One of the main responsibilities would be to oversee/supervise the LPN as in my state (MA) LPNs need RN supervision.   So far I have:

1.  Review/update school health policies as needed

2.  Provide staff training on Epi Pen administration

3. Attend field trips as needed

4.  Help with State screenings

5.  Attend IEP/504 meetings if applicable 

6.  Ensure students who need IHPs have them and write for those who don't

I guess, in a nutshell, if you could have another RN come in and "help", what things would you want done.  This would be a coupe days a week for a 6 hour stretch, or random 3 hour stretches as needed.

Thanks for any ideas or input!

How about providing appropriate delegation as needed? Based on your NPA, of course.

Anything related to supervision of medication administration? Or any kiddos with complex procedures like tube feedings that might need special training prior to delegation? I can probably think of more, but I haven't had my coffee yet.
