Hello everyone! I've been a school nurse at an elementary school for a little over a month now and I love reading this forum! Its really helped me out these first few weeks. I'm just sad the computer blocks me from posting at work
I've certainly learned a lot just by reading your posts! This is my first nursing job and while I've always wanted to be a school nurse I never dreamed it would be my first job but here I am! I have a lot of learning to do but I'm having so much fun doing it!
Anyways... our PE teacher asked me if I would come to his class and teach the kids some basics about first aid. Its coming up in the curriculum and he thought it would be nice for me to come and talk. I was wondering if any of you had any fun ideas on how to present everything? I plan on bringing a first aid kit with me and showing them what should go in it. I also planned on going over the basics about washing cuts, etc and putting on band aids, when to apply ice, etc, etc. Thank you SO much for all your help!
