  1. Can a deaf person be a nurse

    Hello! I have been a nurse for almost 3 years now. I am deaf in my one ear and have around 75% loss of hearing in the other. I am fine with talking on the phone as long as the other person is not talking fast and there is a volume control on the phon...
  2. Why do you think nurses leave the profession?

    I have been a nurse for over 2 years now. I have done school nursing and home health care for two very sick kids. I am now looking outside of nursing for a job. I like working with kids but that is not my LOVE. So as I have been looking for a new are...
  3. Pre-Nursing Students - What to do while waiting...

    If you can look into getting your CNA. If you cannot do that then I would say that the next best thing would be to volunteer at a hospital as a transporter. That is the best way to meet the whole health care team on each floor. Also will help you lat...
  4. 3 more Classes

    Good for you! I remember when I was only 3 classes away from starting my LPN program. Just remember that when you feel like the end will never come (trust me it will feel like that) you are really closer to that point then you think you are. :)
  5. New to methadone nursing

    Hello! I just got a job as a methadone nurse. This will be the first time that I have done this kind of nursing. I have been a school nurse and home health nurse for a child. What kinds of things will I need to take note of when I start? I am not eve...
  6. Anyone work for Professional Case Management (PCM)?

  7. Anyone work for Professional Case Management (PCM)?

    I was just hired today. They gave me very little info can anyone tell me how it is working for them and what do you do while in the pt home? Thanks
  8. Most Frustrating Thing ?

    The district now says that the nurse is a "do not need to know person." That means we do not know about CPS calls or any other medical issue going on with a child unless the mom wants to let us know. When the admin walked into my office and told me t...
  9. calling all seasoned school nurses

    You can do this!!!! You will feel like you are over your head in water and no live saver around. That is just the first 6 weeks. Then you will get into a nice flow with the kids and you will be able to breath once more. Just know that you will always...

  11. Teaching about Epilepsy

    I am a school nurse for a 6-8 grade. I was just asked to teach all of 6th grade about epilepsy. There is a new child coming into the school that has major epilepsy. How would you teach other school kids about epilepsy? Any ideas would be great.

  13. OccuVAX...? Or other flu/vaccine clinics...

    Did anyone get a clinic? I got the list this morning from occuvax. I tried for 4 openings and got one of them. I am not to sure about the paper work. The email that I got told me that I needed to call the place ASAP and then recall them 5 days before...
  14. Expectations of Principal

    Like Praise said...RUN...It may start out that you are working the front for 30mins but before you know it that will lead to you helping with paper work and working more and more in the front. Then if something happens to a child and you are away fro...
  15. New Grad Rn Interview

    Here in my area if you are a school nurse you may as well hang up the idea of doing anything other then schools or LTC. The big box places like nurses that have not worked in schools. I was told by one if them that school nurses don't know how to do ...
