    Lice found, but not on head

    The rules apply...until they don't...

    Its referred to when parents "mow down" any obstacles in front of their students. Students never develop coping skills or problem solving because their parents do it for them.

    Eyelash Lice

    Yes, it's real! Saw a story on the news this morning. People are getting lice on their eyelash extensions. Just thought I would warn you, so now you can be on the lookout for those crafty buggers!

    Panic Attacks

    I'm a HS nurse and am dealing with a lot of panic attacks this year. They are full blown attacks with hyperventilation, shaking, unable to stand...etc. I am chasing my tail all over this school this year for students having attacks in the classroom. When I contact parents about seeing a doctor for possible treatment, they agree and state they will take their LD to be evaluated. Until the next week or month when I'm called to the classroom for the same student, and the student states they have not seen a doctor. I guess my question is, how do you guys treat reoccurring panic attacks when parents don't take their student for a physician eval?

    Prepping for School Nurse Job Search

    In my area, most school nurse positions are posted on the school district website, so you have to go to each individual website, search jobs, and fill out an application with each district. Good luck!

    Another lice topic :)

    If dad isn't able to manage the hair, it might be time to recommend one of the lice treatment companies.

    1st School Nurse Interview

    It depends on who interviews you. If it's administration at the school, they will want to hear how you follow policy and procedure, how you would resolve conflict with co-workers, paperwork, etc. If a medical person interviews you, they will focus on triaging, ABCs, asthma management, diabetic care, etc. School nursing is its own specialty, just take the training you have and apply it to the scenario they present to you. GOOD LUCK!

    Those students that really get to you

    Excuse me while I go to the RR. With all we see throughout the day, it is easy to forget what some of these students are going through at home.
