    Vision/Hearing Screenings

    I thought anyone who performed the V/H screenings in Illinois schools HAD to be certified by Illinois Department of Public Health? That's what I was taught during certification.

    Replacing School Nurses with Health Techs

    Lets all remember nursing judgment and nursing assessment can not be delegated to unlicensed staff. These people do practice nursing "tasks" under our license, but they are NOT critically thinking professional nurses! I have refused certain people to perform some tasks if I did not feel they could do it safely and to my standards.

    Bloodborne Pathogens...HELP!!!!!

    OSHA should be helpful. I do have a short quiz after each BBP class. Includes hazerdous chemical awareness, policies, and lifting techniques.

    Help! Which job should I take?

    My experience has been that the case management and needs of kids of high school age are much easier and less time consuming. At the high school level you would be spending more time teaching students about managing their diabetes and other health conditions where as in the elementary schools the needs of the kids may be greater, especially if the economic status of that area is lower(higher rates of asthma, and other untreated health conditions). It is also important to know if you will be responsible for the vision and hearing screenings in your building. If so, there are fewer mandated grade levels in high school. Good Luck! And consider yourself lucky, where I am, we do not have a nurse in each building. There are 2 of us for 5000 kids in general ed, and a profoundly handicapped program.
