Questions about screenings

Posted

I was just interviewed yesterday for a School Nurse position and I think I'm going to be offered the job!! I have experience in psych, ER and neuro nursing. It was mentioned that I would be doing hearing, vision and dental screenings. I've never done these before and wondered if you all could give me some pointers or tips/tricks to use with the kiddos. Thanks!

If you get the job, ask to meet with the outgoing nurse so she can explain her machines. ALso check with your state association to see what they may provide in the summer, especially for the new school nurse.

Good Luck!!
