  6. NutmeggeRN

    Do you run any special groups?

    Years ago I co-ran a group for kids with chronic health conditions but the group dynamic came to a natural end, via, graduation and sadly death of some of the students...We did some really neat things with kids, and they supported each other in a way no one else could. I have tried to get it up and running again, but can't seem to get any traction...
  7. NutmeggeRN

    School nursing?

    One question they may have is whether or not you have experience in school nursing. That may well be the deciding factor. I hope you sustain your recovery, good luck!

    Were you a frequent flyer in you’re own school days

    I'm glad one of "us" was there for you. Been doing this a long time and learned many years ago just how important that "check in" is to some kiddos.
  9. NutmeggeRN

    Typical schedule.

    I arrive by 7:10 and the kids start @ 7:34, after that it changes daily!! depends on what is going on...I do case manage 504 kiddos, so periodically have meetings. I monitor their grades. I do staff education as needed, I update FamilyID with any medical concerns for athletes. Sometimes it is a sit and wait, others I cannot catch my breath!!!

    Action Plans

    Interesting that the counselor brought it to you. Were you unaware of the dx? I would confer with parent and student, determine what the child's risk factors are and the share accordingly with those who need to know.

    Were you a frequent flyer in you’re own school days

    I actually volunteered in the health office! The nurse was a friend of my moms and she knew I had an interest in nursing. A no-no today due to confidentiality issues.
