November 2016

Nursing Assessment Tools

+ this post contains an affiliate link +

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.

Nurses can't diagnosis, 
but  nurses 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 :)
