    Yes, he did, because he was not immune. How did you do on your HESI? He has a 3.6 GPA in his sciences, but did not do so well on his HESI (made an overall score of 82). His advisor told him that they receive 150-200 applications and only admit 80. Kinda scary...

    My son applied to the Lamar BSN program for Fall 2018. Fingers crossed he gets in. Do you happen to know when applicants will be notified of acceptance/denial and how many students they're supposed to admit for Fall 2018?

    It might be a matter of needing to educate the teachers on what does and does not necessitate a clinic visit. And the fact that you have to call every. single. parent. of every. single. student. who comes in your office, is ridiculous. Speaking for myself, there is no way on God's green earth that I have time to call 30+ parents every day to let them know that Johnny and/or Suzy came in to see me for something that wasn't even noteworthy. Not unless, of course, admin would prefer me abandon my other job duties such as screenings, maintaining up-to-date shot records and health files, coordinating care for my chronically ill children, handing out daily meds, etc.

    I am so jealous of your pay!!! Mine isn't even close.
    Really? Maybe I should be more appreciative of my salary as compared to others here, but I'm still a little bitter over what I consider to be a minuscule salary for what we do.

    I work in Texas, get paid following the teacher salary scale, and am currently getting paid as an 8th year teacher at around $58k per year.

    Hello fellow nurses,I'd like to know if your schools have a protocol for children with Asthma. Are there set procedures that you are required to follow for your really bad asthmatics? You know, the ones who are in your clinic one or two times a day with an asthma attack. Is there a generic management plan in place that you require the parent and physician to complete? I'm doing a project on school children dealing with asthma and how it affects their attendance as well as their class work. I'll then be required to come up with an asthma management plan to present to the district that will hopefully help keep these kids absences down and improve their school work. Any input would be greatly appreciated from you experts actually working in this field. thanks in advance.

    How about home health PRN? Most agencies are always looking for RN's willing to do visits on the weekends.

    Hi all,

    I am a new school nurse, just started today, actually. The principle mentioned to me that I will be required to give an inservice for 50+ employees on bloodborne pathogens and HIV. HELLO! I'm freaking out! I get extremely nervous speaking in really large groups of people, much less a bunch of teachers! Is this something that is required by all districts? Does anyone know where I can dig up some info (organized) on bloodborne pathogens and HIV that is short, sweet, and to the point? Or, do you think it would be okay to ask the principle if I can show a film on these topics, maybe give a short multiple choice exam, and then open it up for discussion/questions at the end? Advice needed.....

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply! The principle called me at 3pm the same day I interviewed! I'm so excited!!!!! How long have you been a school nurse and how do you like it?

    I interviewed at 9am and the principle called me at 3pm to ask me to send her 3 references. She said she was very interested in me and she would like to offer me the position if my references checked out. I'm so excited! I don't think I've ever been chosen over 4 other people for any position! We didn't discuss details of the job during the interview (start date, training, whether or not I'll have to be certified, etc). Has anyone ever worked with 7th-8th grade students??? Is there anything I should brush up on prior to starting the year?

    I interviewed for a school nurse position this morning for an intermediate school. Interview only lasted approx 20 min. Is that a bad sign? Principle did mention she was interviewing 4 other candidates today for the position and hoped to make a decision by the end of the week. How long after you interviewed did you get a offer?

    OK, I went on my interview today for a school nurse position at an intermediate school. The interview only lasted 20 minutes, or so. My husband seems to think that's a bad sign, as it wasn't much time. The principle seemed interested but I must admit I was SOOO nervous! She mentioned that she had 4 other people interviewing for the position today and hoped to make a decision soon! What should my next step be, if any? Do I write a follow up thank you letter for allowing me the time, or not? What do you all think?

    5 people interviewing for a school nurse position that was just posted last week seems like ALOT to me! I didn't think there would be so many applicants I would be competing with!
