I do not see this as an advancement. I see this as a Lazy Nurse trying to dodge her duties. It doesnt take much to document information in a chart.

The money spent on this data could and should have been put to more useful and important aids for the children.

Thats what you get when you allow a NURSE to take the reins, ridiculous....

Well Done

It is wonderful to see a school district that supports and recongizes the importance to school nurses. As the Nursing Supervisor of a District with 9,000 student, every day is an uphill battle in convincing the Superindentent and staff the improtance of a full time School Nurse.

Great job Doreen Crowe! I just put my toe in the grant writing process last year and was successful obtaining $1500 to fund some indoor recess equipment and a salad bar at the end of the school year. We are nurses, we can do anything!

Parent of 3 obviously doesn't know what school nurse do today. As school nurses we need to better educate our parent partners. The nurse at the reins in this story obtained over $500,000 for the school district to fund the capital expenses of setting up school health offices, etc...!
Way to go Doreen! Thank you for all that you do!
