  1. Free CE credits

    Where is the best place to get free CE? I am about to retire so I was wondering about this.
  2. PRN work during retirement

    Has anyone done PRN work after retiring? I don't think I could do hospital work, but would consider office or Long Term Care. I would also consider non nursing work. Might be fun.
  3. Leading from Behind

    sounds like Oklahoma
  4. contact tracing in Oklahoma

    Yes, we require regular immunizations. Covid vaccines are not required for public school.
  5. Best Inservices you've had

    An inservice years ago from police that reviewed illegal drugs. Things to watch for drugs, alcohol, and they even brought things that had been taken from students that was used to use drugs. I was very naive about the ways students get around this.
  6. contact tracing in Oklahoma

    With the passage of Oklahoma SB 658, we do not currently have any mask mandates in my area. We can only quarantine a positive student or staff member. Also, we can only highly recommend quarantine for close contacts per our school lawyer. We can not...
  7. Tired of being "the bad guy"...

    I feel your frustration. I am in Oklahoma. Oklahoma has the least amount of restrictions. Administration and the school board has adopted the ten day policy. We still quarantine households with a positive family member ten days after the positive fam...

  11. Parents STILL Sending Sick Kids to School

    Wait until you have teachers who doesn't believe in quarantine and send their kids any way. Then you have to get administration involved and still I feel like the bad guy.
  12. Holiday Travel and Mandatory Quarantining?

    No travel restrictions in Oklahoma.
  13. allergie and covid

    I should say our Elementary requires masks and district requires everyone who rides a bus to be masked.
  14. Plan to Return to Face to Face Learning?

    I will be surprised if many teachers return next year. I see many in tears everyday from regular classes, virtual same time as class, and the virtual that just checks in now and then. Plus being rural, internet is not always reliable. We also have s...
  15. New School Nurse Feeling Swamped...

    Year 19 as a school nurse. Year 30 as a RN. I'm feeling overwhelmed myself especially with covid. I have prek through 12th about 900 students. I call other district nurses and ask them questions or email is easier. Join you state school nurse's assoc...
