    5th grade puberty class

  2. hammergirl5


    sounds ok to me ... we can use cough drops though ... we have a list of "standard treatments" that we use that is on our website and goes home with every student in the begining of the year. If a parent has any issues they can "opt out" of the standard treatments.

    School nurse position @ my children's school

    I love my job! The pay is half of what I made at a major university medical center here in Richmond, VA ... but the time with my family and being there for them is priceless. The job itself is very rewarding ... I totally agree with momnurse23 ... she couldn't have said it any better, as I was going to say nearly the exact same thing ... minus the home health.

    5th grade puberty class

    That is where I ordered my "kits" from ... and they have a lot less than they used to offer. The girls only get a small pamphlet and a sample pack of pads/tampons and the boys only get a small pamphlet. They used to give deodorant samples as well ... I was not impressed this year.

    Teenage bowel training

    I feel awful for this young man. We had a similar situation in my middle school. Once the child started being being bullied and made fun of for smelling of "poop", the parents got on board with figuring out a "program" for the child, which seems to be working for him. I suggest getting your guidance counselors involved, seems to me that this could be a child welfare issue. Good luck!

    Subbing ?

    Subbing is how I "got my foot in the door". I do however have 12 years of other nursing experience as well though! Check your states requirments for school nurses.
