    Racial Refusals In Nursing

    I think I'm a dreamer.... I just don't see how there is room in this world for racism. Why can't we all just enjoy the differences in people, and embrace something bigger than us. Race has nothing to do with the level of care one receives, or one giv...

    If you weren't a nurse, what would you have become?

    Hmmmm...... *sigh*. I always wanted to be a veterinarian (so cliche... I know).... received my first degree as a BS Animal Science from UCONN (GO HUSKIES!!). Going to vet school turned out to be a pipe dream.... somehow the student loans for an out-o...

    Walkie-talkies

    We use Motorola.... I don't know the model, but they are yellow and black. That may not be too helpful.... but we did get some last year, so I would think that they're relatively easy to find. Some days, the reception can be a little fuzzy, but for...

    Walkie-talkies

    Hey 100kids... We have walkies here..... one of the walkies goes out with the medical bag, out to recess with the kids. It's very convenient if I need to get in touch with the teacher outside, and vice versa. I think it was a good idea to have.....

    What do you go by?

    I have been referred to as Nurse Amy... or Nurse. I think it's cute when the little ones refer to me as Nurse Amy. This wasn't a choice on my part... the teachers just kind of implemented it on their own. However, I think it's pretty nice, and not sn...

    New School Nurse - looking for ideas

    Hi Everyone! I just started as a school nurse for a small private school at the end of August, and I'm enjoying the challenges as they come my way. I'm wondering what kind of activities you plan, or how involved you are with the students outside...
