November 2016

Here's the post I promised you a couple of days ago on my IG account :)Search for me on IG  the_school_nurse

Of course I feel like November flew by...  
You would only be surprised if I said otherwise, right?

I'm feeling a little behind in my schedule 
because I'm into my 4th week of the CNA train-the-trainer course.
I guess I forgot how much time it takes to take a class :)

As for my school nurse thoughts for November...
You can tell by my picture I was thinking a lot about assessment.

As nurses we can't diagnosis, 
but we can offer students and parents our assessment skills.  
  • Use the tools available to you in your office.
  • Give parents all of your assessment data for them to share with their doctor or NP.
  • Document, document, document.- your results, your interactions, your phone calls 
What else can you think of that I forgot to include?  Please share :)

October 2016

October 2016 - 

This month seemed to pass in a flash!

  • By now you've should have a handle on your new student required paperwork & you should have all forms turned in or students on an approved schedule.  I keep track of my "in-series" kiddos on a google drive sheet!  
  • My typical weekly follow up cases include- doctor related PE excuse notes, concussion status, & vision and hearing re-screens.  For these situations I use the old-school "piles on my desk" tracking system!  I will say the piles are organized, clipped together, and labeled; for now this sort of system seems to work :)
  • I'm getting ready to schedule the yearly dental clinic.  We usually see 80-100 students over a span of three days.
  • I'm also re-vamping the system I use to track IEP students who have a primary or secondary label of OHI & would love to hear if any of you have a system already in place- please share :)
  • I'm also enjoying the GREAT, WARM weather we've been having in Illinois & look forward to watching the CUBS WIN game 7 tonight!!
