I like counting down weeks...7 1/2 weeks for me! We go two weeks later than everyone else...boo.

Let me just say how jealous I am right now! I guess come August when I'm still laying on a beach with 4 weeks til school starts again I'll feel better.

We have 42 days left here. 8 and a half weeks to go. I think I like the days better than the weeks-sounds better.

Being new in the middle of this year I still have so much to get done by the end of June.:bugeyes:

Oh my gosh. 8 weeks for me. I will start my 'get it done' list today. It is rather exciting, isn't it? I'll still be working Mondays and Tuesdays at the Pedi's office in the summer, but oh those glorious Wednesdays thru Sundays!!!! I hope this board won't go completely quiet over the summer, I'll miss you guys!!

Since this is my 1st year as a School nurse and I didn't even start at the beginning of the year can anyone share some of the things on their "Get it done" list so I am not scrambling at the last minute.

thanks!

Hi 100 kids!

My To do list includes a lot of follow-up --

making sure I've followed up and documented the response of all parents/MD reports for kids who failed the state mandated screenings. I am getting ready to submit the end of the year reports.

I am sending letters home to parents, letting them know what paperwork will be needed for the next year. For example, my state requires that a physical be submitted for certain grades. While I encourage all parents to send in the results from the child's yearly physical, I will definitely need the physicals on file for the grade(s) that the state mandates, so I send out a letter which helps them get all the info from their pedi when they book their summer physicals. They will also get a letter in early June advising them to pick up meds, or risk them being destroyed.

I get my MD orders for the next school year before this school year ends, and basically as much as I can get done in advance so that September is less of a bear.

I also plan/schedule my spring presentations -- hygiene, safety, allergies, CPR.

I have a month-by month list of basic school nurse tasks that I got from another nurse in my district, and I would be happy to share it if you are interested. PM me your e-mail, and I will scan the doc and send it to you.

Cheers!

FYi -- For anyone that sent me their e-mail, I sent out that document. It's three scanned pages, so it looks a bit odd, but it's safe to open :nurse:
