Pros: school calendar
Cons: no breaks and everybody wanting your time.
I oversee about 50 Medically Fragile students in the school setting. Most of the students live at Providence Center for the Medical Fragile and during the school year, they are placed in several different schools from kindergarten to age 21. Routinely, I teach the educational staff how to care for these students by delegation training following our Student Health Management Plan, continue to assess their health care, contact parents/Resident Care Managers. There is also ongoing health care assessments that I do if problems arise at school. I have learned to be an active listener and to try and work with all people involved. I also work with a LPN. The hardest part of the job is making sure that I am aware of all their health care needs. The most enjoyable part is watching these kids grow and see the changes that occur over time.
