  2. "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.

    Enterovirus D68

    The U S Department of Education Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) is receiving inquiries regarding the applicability of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) in regard to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from education records to local health officials. Given these inquiries, Dale King, the Director of the U S Department of Education Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) sent out this reminder of the guidance issued by FPCO in October 2009 in response to privacy and public safety concerns at that time regarding the H1N1 flu outbreak. 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.

    Family response to head lice

    About half of my career has been in early childhood special needs. I agree - the parents are amazing and it always reminded me I have NOTHING to complain about compared to the burdens and caregiving they face 24-7.

    prn orders

    The forms are part of the permanent students' records. You cannot destroy them. Does your school have a policy that parents must supply the health office? Do you have a budget for supplies?

    Medicaid Billing

    "I still think it is wrong" Wondering why you think it is wrong? If you were providing care in a ambulatory center or hospital Medicaid and 3rd party insurers are billed for your services.

    DNR/Comfort Care Policy Suggestions/Samples

    I was told by a researcher just about 2-3 years ago, that at that time there was no recorded death of a child at school who had a DNR - the majority of kids are usually too sick to come to school, and have been home for almost 2 weeks when they die.
