  3. "but being a one man band here, i don't think i'd ever qualify" Why would you say that? It is a team application. Teams can be district wide, region wide, state wide. It requires a minimum of two nurses and one community partner. Community partners have been from the school administration, public health, non profits, foundations, YMCAs, community organizations, lead school nurses, state government, ........ Take a look at the application. Any questions? I can answer here.

    Brian Short News

    I met Brian before AllNurses was even the name. He joined a group of us for the early Minnesota Informatics Nursing Group (MINING) meetings as we were forming the group. He was still working at Hennepin County, but had found his passion. I signed up to monitor a couple of the specialty groups early on, and have been a member since 1998. But like many of the others have posted, you connected with Brian once and he had your back forever. He supported my career and I his. I remember his joy when his first child was born. I am shaken to my core. My grief for both Brian and his dear family is deep. My heartfelt prayers for all, his wife's family, his family, friends and all the lives he touched who are feeling this disbelief and sadness.

    scrubs or business casual

    Who else wears scrubs today outside the hospital? Lunch ladies janitors (the name of the cleaning crew company at O'Hare is "Scrubs", and they wear scrubs) factory workers who work on the production lines prisoners Can anyone else name others?

    scrubs or business casual

    In studies, the public's opinion of nurse scrubs is not as positive as nurses' opinions (Fletcher, 2007; Takase, Maude, & Manais, 2006): most dressed in scrubs, old running shoes and clogs that are not as professional looking," …(A)ll layers and hoodies, …too casual. 53% reported nurses did not look professional in scrubs in comparison to 95% of nurses

    The National Association of School Nurses did a poll a few years ago and only 25% of school nurses wear scrubs.

This guidance document is available on our website at: http://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/pdf/ferpa-h1n1.pdf Although, the guidance is specific to H1N1, the context of the guidance is applicable today in terms of Enterovirus D68, Ebola, etc. Additional questions may be forwarded to FERPA@ed.gov.
