MommaBear, would you explain your *personal opinion* about the need/benefit of school nurses in schools? What would you want and why?
Connect the dots for us (in very simple language, please [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] ) so that we can understand your opinion.
Thanks [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

The first link is entitled:[b]"Illinois Association of School Nurses Job Description, Certified School Nurse"[/b], and is a job description for a [b]"Certified School Nurse"[/b].
The second link, entitled: [b]"Illinois Association of School Nurses Job Description"[/b], is a job description for a
[b]"Registered Nurse"[b] [i]working in a school[/i] in the State of Illinois.
Note the difference.
I am still thinking about addressing your question, Gail. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
Just letting it soak in, while contemplating a brilliant orange color for my "summer nails" even though their red glimmer is so comfortably familiar.
Change can be difficult. (I also spied a [i]heavenly[/i] lavender which would better compliment my new platinum toe ring. (Mother's day gift).
In comparison to my dull, yellowed nails (and their apparent ineffectiveness in [i]Managing[/i] my hubby, I can't see where the difficulty lies in my choice. Any one of the shades would be better than none at all. Although I am *sure* he quite possibly might prefer one over the other. Or equally possible, anything over nothing. LOL.

Sigh. So much I read on these boards where I can draw the connection. Maybe I am assuming that many folk will "get it". Must be that "just don't get it" thing when it doesn't happen.

I posted in another thread:
"When developing my son's 504 plan, the [b]"Part Time"[/b] school nurse was absent from any meetings. Aside from some VERY GENERAL small talk associated with my son's pa/nuts/asthma/some other legumes, she had no further input that I was made aware or know of.
Perhaps she was not prepared to deal with the situation effectively. Perhaps she had never read and was unaware of the [b]"Position Statements"[/b] by the [i]National Association of School Nurses.[/i] [b]Which, if I was a School Nurse, I would *personally* feel extremely relevant.[/b] Perhaps she had never read her [b]Job Description.[/b] I do not know what value she placed on [b]"Continuing Education"[/b] or in what areas, if any, she had undertaken the same. I can think of several that would be of benefit to her in retrospect, irregardless of what she had received credit for previously, if any at all.
I *personally* feel her position indicated the need for her to be a [b]"key player"[/b], if not primary coordinator, in developing a 504 plan. (as well as recognizing the importance of [b]Anticipatory Guidance[/b]. Perhaps she mistakenly thought I could fill in for her. Perhaps she mistakenly put any "conflict of interest" with the school ahead of her [b]Duty, Professional Obligation, and Ethical Obligation[/b] as a School Nurse to advocate in the best interest of the "Patient" [i]while maintaining an appropriate Standard of Practice.[/i] Which, by the way, I have found *personally* to be quite possible and [i]extremely fullfilling[/i].
Perhaps her experience and education as an RN was not appropriate to the situation. I do not know if she was a [b]"Certified School Nurse".[/b] I do not know if she was [b]"Baccalaureate Degree"[/b] prepared. I do not know what RN experience, if any, she had prior to becomming a [b]Part Time School Nurse.[/b]
All I know is her license was current. [b] I know because I checked.[/b] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Not hard to do online (I live in the US and within the State of Illinois).
