    ? re: performance assessments at WGU..

    Thank you, Klone. When you say, "you take as long as you need to complete it," does this mean you can work on the assessment for days or even weeks?
  3. I haven't started my first course yet. I just completed the beginning steps of applying, taking the readiness exam and sending in my transcripts.I am worried about the performance assessments. How is this set up? Are these research papers? Are you given a lot of time to complete them or are they required to be completed in the matter of hours?I am not confident with my writing skills. Writing papers has always caused me some anxieties. I am concerned that WGU might not be the program for me if the performance assessments are written exams that need to be completed within a timed structure. Thanks!

    insulin pump

    I would never withhold a snack. If the student has an elevated bs & wants a snack, they simply the high blood sugar & carbs by entering it into the pump. What kind of snack does the student have? I've found snacks that are high in protein (peanut butter, soy butter, or chocolate milk) are nice, stabalizing snacks. Your care plan should give parameters for PE & when to exclude (with too high or too low of a blood sugar, or if (+) ketones. I would not have student bolus for every low reading, especially if they are in checking frequently. You might end up with hypoglycemia instead. Take a deep breath. Relax. Talk to the student's mom & her diabetic educator/ or the physician's nurse. Priority #1 for me would be to get the orders/ parameters you need clarified ASAP! Hope your tomorrow is better. Hugs to you.

    do I tell the other school's nurse?

    Ahhh. I apologize. I forgot what the original post even was & had to reread it! I thought this was a family that transferred to a new district & you wanted to tip-off the other nurse. I was wrong. I think I got 2 topics mixed up. Sorry!

    do I tell the other school's nurse?

    And you KNOW that these transferred students actually EXPOSED these students by their mere presence in the other school building? Really? Be careful here.

    do I tell the other school's nurse?

    Perhaps instead of 'rechecking those kids' she should 'recheck' her schools policy. No-nit policies are so antiquated & not at all in line with the current standard of practice.

    Were you a "sub" before getting full time?

    Yes. For a neighboring district. Experience counts!
