  1. Second guessing myself

    I would have done the exact same thing. You were assessing the injury and I am assuming the student probably assisted somewhat in removing the boot so I am sure you had their consent. Think of what could have happened if you didn't remove the b...
  2. Christmas Gift Commiseration Thread

    My bosses gave me a blank card with just their two first names on it LOL. Thankfully my secretaries and I all do a gift exchange. I definitely feel the love from them more than admin LOL
  3. Transition to school nursing questions

    It all depends on your local school district. You might get lucky that your child's school is hiring a school nurse at the same time you are wanting to get into school nursing. But in my opinion, school nursing is just like any other nursing sp...

  8. Vision/Hearing with virtual learners

    We have a form for parents to fill out electronically that gives the parents the option of making an appointment to come in or to opt out of the screening this year. At least in my state, parents can opt out of state mandated vision and hearing...
  9. Left in the Dark

    I am so sorry this is happening. It is the same in my district. Even though we have a nurse lead, we have not been made a part of the decisions at all. Keep advocating for your voice to be heard. That is what we are trying to do.
  10. Isolation

    My district is enforcing that, if there is not an extra designated space, admin (principal, AP, etc.) will have to give up their office and create it as a designated isolation room.
