I am taking a class in grad school and I have to come up with specific and relevant problems I would like to see improved or changed in my practice setting as a school nurse. The problem has to be measurable and I have to identify data that suggest a problem exists.  Any suggestions??

I work for a middle school 900 students. It's a title 1 school 97% have free or reduced lunch. It's in inner-city school here in Wichita. NOt in the greatest neighborhoods lots of crime.

How about screening referral returns.  You screened __# of students  __# Failed __# referred __# referrals returned.  What you did to increase the number of returned referrals.

Take a sample of your asthmatics.  See how many absences they have had.  Provide asthma education and see if their absentee rate goes down but the end of the time period.

I am getting involved with our vision screening referrals this year because there was a poor follow-up last year.  I am doing exactly what tining suggested.  I am looking at the referrals returns from last year and will send letters and call students this year and compare return rates.  I am in a very similar school demographic.
