  1. Current Immunization Research

    Thanks for the recommendation for books by Paul Offit. I just finished Autism False Prophets. It was very informative and does a really good job explaining the research at the time. It was written 10 years ago though. So now I am trying to find somet...
  2. Current Immunization Research

    I would also like the facts for myself. Because I would like to be more informed.
  3. Current Immunization Research

    I am looking for some current reliable immunization research. It seems like there has been a recent resurgence of anti-vaxxers. So I would like to increase my knowledge of the actual facts so I can better discuss the facts.
  4. Anyone in the DC, MD, VA Area?

    I am looking for someone to shadow for a day, or a few hours. I am considering starting my master in informatics and I wanted to get some more information before taking the plunge. Please PM me. Thank you!
  5. Free Resources

    Does anyone have, or know where to find, a list of free resources for health rooms? If not let's start one. I am looking for things like posters, handouts, education kits, etc.
  6. Any Montgomery Country MD Nurses?

    I have a few questions about Montgomery County, MD school nursing. If you work or worked for them please PM me.
  7. Pennsylvania Certification Question

    I am considering moving to Philly at some point and I have a question. Do all school nurses in PA, regardless of experience, need to be certified? Is it correct that getting certified costs about $15,000? If so that seems ridiculous that someone with...
  8. 1:1 School Nursing Questions

    I would ask what kind of training they are going to give you. I would also ask what types of needs are you going to be dealing with. G-tubes, trachs, vents, etc. Personally I would not take a 1:1 position as a new grad unless you are very confident y...
  9. What do you wear to work as a school nurse?

    Business casual. We are not allowed to wear scrubs
  10. Mandated HPV Vaccinations?

    In DC HPV is mandatory for all students over the age of 11. Parents are allowed to opt out. Last year DC decided to require that the opt out forms be sent in every year. I work in a special needs school where most parent choose to opt out. Our studen...
  11. Who do you order your School Health supplies from?

    I use Moore for basic supplies (gauze, syringes, bandages, etc). But for more expensive supplies I shop around because Moore's prices are very high.
  12. Who's Left ??

    I think I can win for the latest day off. I get out July 31 and only have two weeks off. My school is an 11 month program. But that's ok, I think I would get board having 3 months off.
  13. super annoyed

    I am at a special needs school and we have over 100 students with autism. Many of them are nonverbal. We treat them as you would treat a typically developed student in terms of fevers. But when it comes to most other things, we don't have hard and fa...
  14. It's almost summer! What are your plans?

    Working because we are an 11 month program so we only get two weeks off.
  15. Interview next week. Nervous

    In addition to the usual skills, etc. the biggest things I look for are a real love for working with kids and a real desire to work at school and not just for the schedule.
