Hello all of my spectacular and knowledgeable school nurses!
It has been about a year since I have posted (don't worry Ive been keeping up with all the threads!) and I am in need of some guidance once again. So last year I was a brand new school nurse asking for tips and help with many different things. WELL, its a year later and I still feel like I need guidance. Thankfully I have a solid pediatric background, because to this day I was never properly trained- no protocols, no info on immunizations, how to deal with various situations etc. I have recently applied for a new school nurse position and I am intimidated to say the least. The school I am currently at has 400 kids this new school has 700+. They say the school nurse takes care of 50+ kids a day with 27 daily meds. GUYS HOW AM I GOING TO MANAGE THAT MANY KIDS. Also emergency action plans, safety action plans, staff medication teaching--- where do you guys get this information? Please add any tips or tricks dealing with your personal organization, immunization deadlines, screenings, communication with new staff. PLEASE ANYTHING WILL HELP. I appreciate every single one of you.
