    Missouri School Nurses - BinaxNOW Rapid Testing

    For those doing the testing, what type of training did you get?

    RN vs. EMT

    A lot of EMT's don't think nursing home nurses know anything. Don't feel bad, they don't think school nurses know anything either. Just stick to your guns, and know that you are doing what is right for your resident.

    Stolen supplies

    That's awful. I have started locking my office and hiding supplies just in case 😞

    Lord- Coronavirus drama

    We finally got cleaning supplies in each classroom as well as hand sanitizer. This should have been done every year just for flu season. I guess we can thank the media for something!

    FERPA violation?

    We are now being told no student specific info in emails unless encrypted. They are worried about people hacking into our system. This makes things much more difficult in terms of quick, accurate communication.
  6. Wow, how rude. I am sorry this happened to you.

    FERPA violation?

    I do not hand out lists. All of the allergies and med alerts are in E-school. I remind my teachers at the beginning of the year to check their students alerts.

    Should I attend a 12 month or 15 month LPN program ?

    pharmacology has a lot of math so you will be doing math no matter what. 20,000 seems very high for an LPN program.

    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!
  13. 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 🙂

  16. 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!
