    Gave vancomycin wrong

    Your supervisor is wrong, you won't lose your license over this so relax. Medication errors happen, learn from it and don't make the same mistake again. Your patient will be fine and so will you!

    Am I too old to become a nurse?

    Nope, not at all....I graduated when I was 36!

    Teachers Union --Should You Join?

    It is worth it to join if you will get the same benefits as the teachers. Don't believe for a minute they will fight for your pay though...they won't!
  4. Just my 2 cents, why wasn't a call bell placed in reach of the patient?

    New School Nurse

    It sounds like the experience you have would be very useful in that particular job however you truly do need excellent assessment skills to be a school nurse. Some schools have 2 nurses but most have 1 so you really only have yourself to depend on. I would try to get some hands on nursing experience before you attempt school nursing. The students these days are much more complicated with both physical and mental issues. Good luck

  7. Hi bsyrn,

    I noticed you replied to a post about Special Ed school nursing. I’m interested in this field and noticed a lack of special Ed nursing topics. I wondered if you have experience in it and if you could give me insight into what the job is like. I’d greatly appreciate it. 

    Thank you!

    What do teachers think about school nurses?

    I use to try and socialize and be more involved with the teachers but truly all it did was upset me. They have no idea what I do and unless they need something, I don't think they care. It is much easier and less stressful to just stay in my office.

    Happy Nurses' Week, my loves!

    I got a gift card, a plant and was included in the lunch for the teachers. It made me feel happy to be appreciated

    Nosebleeds

    Yes they stay in my office, the teachers would freak if I sent them back still bleeding . Besides, I like to make sure they wash up before they leave.

    Annoyed and perhaps a little unsure

    You didn't mess up, next time just call the parent

    Freaking out over a patient fall!!

    You know you messed up so you certainly don't need anyone harping on that. Unfortunately, patient safety is taken extremely seriously so there could be some dire consequences. I would go in totally prepared with what you learned and how this will never happen again. It really doesn't matter what the doctor or nurse said, bottom line is the gait belt should have been used. I am hoping for the best outcome for you!
  15. It is about your patient and their right to feel comfortable with their care. Honestly, I truly hope you change your attitude before you actually become a nurse.

    1st 911 call at my new school

    You did the right thing, hopefully Mom follows through. Can you go directly to his doctor to try and get an order? Sometimes that works for me.
