While in school limbo...

Hi, there.

School nurse wondering about needs/opportunities to help/work during the crisis while school is not in session.

A couple of caveats:

Want to work part-time and not get on the rotating shift circus. Also, not willing to jump into a place where staffing patterns are obscene and exploitative.

Maybe part-time volunteering...?

Maybe look into the Medical Reserve Corps? I got emailed by my state's dept of health with encouragement to join, though I can't because I still have to be available during school hours and "doing work" to get paid & keep my medical insurance (which we desperately need as my husband's work offers terrible and expensive medical insurance).

I second the medical reserve corp. I have gotten a ton of emails from them, but I also need to be available to check emails and answer questions. Plus, my husband has to report to work daily, so I am standing by with my kiddo and trying not to get exposed. I ran into a nurse friend while picking up food last night who said she was working the hotline for MRC. She said there were a lot of school nurses there
