  1. Gurnick Lvn to Rn in fresno

    I am a LVN graduate and let me just say, DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! I hope they have improved some, but we wen't through **12** instructors over the course of 12 months. Nothing was taught by practice on real people. It was slides on a projector, and ...

  3. School Nurse Concerns

    This topic has been a huge one for me personally. I am LVN working 7th-12th grade school about 600+ kids. I have some special needs kids that I help with daily. The other school in my district is TK-6th grade. The medical assistant has been there 12+...
  4. Seeking feedback on LPN School...

    Im in CALI. The reason LVN make that much is because the cost of living here in outrageous. I made $36,000 last year bring home. I work for a school so I do get benefits and my summer is paid via taking a percentage out of my monthly check to set asi...
  5. Did you replace a school nurse?

    Yes and NO. I was the district's first LVN hire. The RN school nurse was in/out of the district working for last 15 years or so. It was a confusing time for me (being my first LVN job) and the district with me being the first LVN. I had a clear outli...
  6. Tired of School Nursing?

    This job is not for everyone, and even though I am a social person I have learned you are alone quite a bit. I try to fill my days doing other things. I am an LVN so I take college classes online. This helps keep me busy on slow days. I honestly have...
  7. Diabetic "supplies"

    Thank you everyone for the feedback. We talked it over, and ADmin is going to deal with it, because honestly it is a discipline issue.
  8. Diabetic "supplies"

    Im not 100% sure what APP it is. All I know is that it is connected to her meter and sends alerts to her mom's phone if shes low/high. If she is away from the phone the signal is lost. So im sure there could be a fight that the phone needs to stay wi...
  9. Diabetic "supplies"

    Hello everyone, Need advice on this.... Student has a pump and its connected to her phone (APP) which mom also gets alerts. Our school policy is no cell phones for jr high students. She has been caught using her cell phone for social media and not ch...
  10. Who is your boss?

    When I got hired, I was given a job duty list, along with who I report to... My principal. The credentialed school nurse was more like an advisor. I was lucky to have the RN only really come in once a week if that, and I ran my office. It also sucked...
  11. How to pay for Xavier School of Nursing?

    How it worked for me. The school gets your financial aid money and applies it toward your balance. They will usually get 1/2 the money for each semester. so if you are expecting 9500 / by 2 semesters thats 4750 a semester of financial year. You will ...
  12. Is it legal for your boss to dictate where you poop?

    I work at a school and I kid you not, the vice principal was a "thing" about burping. She has told staff in the lunch room if they burp she wants you to do 20 push ups!
  13. The Nut Conundrum

    Our district went Nut free zone a couple years ago due to student allergy. Well that same student has returned to our district this time as a jr high kid, (my school). We have given her accomidations that were listed from the doctor, but the Cafeteri...
  14. Inappropriate to ask teachers to stop sending kids after a certain time?

    Ive had my fair share of being called out at the end of the day maybe 5-10 minutes before school is out to assess a kid. I always do it with a smile, and when I get home I tell everyone how annoyed I really was to check a temp on a student on a FRIDA...
