Hi MommaBear,
I visited the link you provided above for the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN). I know that many school nurses belong to the National Association of School Nurses. Is it common for school nurses to belong to the AACN as well? Membership in both of these professional associations is voluntary, correct? Do you feel one is better than the other? Perhaps one of the resources a parent might want to present to “an uninformed school” is philosophy, beliefs and value statement of AACN. –We have a wonderful school nurse who is an RN who adores Katie. I am so appreciative of her professionalism, dedication, support and gentleness. Katie knows that if she needs *anything* the school nurse is always her safety person.
Take care,
Rhonda

Rhonda,
Thank you for your reply [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
To quote you:
"Perhaps one of the resources a parent might want to present to an uninformed school is philosophy, beliefs and value statement of AACN."
I am a tired, busy, mother, wife, daughter, friend, neighbor, and yes, nurse. Hopefully, someday, I will be a tired, busy grandmother. I love the reasons I am tired, though. I believe the philosophy, beliefs, and values of the statement are lovely ones. When I get really really tired, I read it again. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] It reminds me how lucky I am that God chooses to let me live another day.I wear a lot of hats, and I make an effort to apply the statement to my other roles in life.

Good for you, Synthia! We all need to remember to take care of ourselves, too. After 8 years of not going out with dh, except, perhaps twice, we have found a babysitter and have started "dating" again. So much fun!
Just wanted to point out - whoever you left little v with - consider that person in your comfort zone!
When I think of things or situations where feel safe, I feel like I have control and I feel so much better! Maybe you will, too.

Dropped off all paper work to her school today.

The nurse keeps asking me the same thing over and over again.
The bendryl and epi-pen.
I've told her if contact: wash her with warm soap and water and then do bendryl.if the area that has been contacted spreads or other symponts occure give Epi-pen and call 911
Sorry every one got to go for now been very sick.Started on mon. I try to get DH to type more.

"The nurse is still askeing about the anaphylaxis when to adim, the EP-Pen."
Ask her to put her concerns in writing.
Ask her if it is ok to forward it to your child's physician (the one who manages the PA allergy).
I would be interested in her response.
