  3. New School Nurse Diastat Training and so much more

    Agreed! With Diastat you must assess, and a healthcare assessment is a NURSING function. Where I work, only the nurse administers Diastat.
  4. No Respect

    I am kind of snarky, but when the teachers try to tell me how to do my job, my rebuttal is that they can do MY job and I can go teach their class common core, as I have an app for that and it can't really be all that hard.

  10. Hand Sanitizer is a pesticide?

    I got an e mail after attending the CSNO conference about Pesticides. I just started school nursing in October. In July of this year, the State of CA is doing a bunch of shenanigans because they think lots of rules are awesome. Hand sanitizer, saniti...

    Been there. I feel for you. I think we are nurses are so traumatized we are now numb. I am in my 3rd nursing career change. I did 4 years in CV/Tele/Stepdown. Saw it all. I saw a lady's butt had grown in to her rocker chair from neglect, watched the...

  14. New to school nursing

    Thank you for the warm welcome. I am happy to see such an active group. I must say, there are some days I think I have finally found what I have wanted to do. Then there are other days when I feel like I'm not sure I can juggle it all. There is a l...
