The Relentless School Nurse: What Happened at School Today?

Robin M Cogan ·
Welcome to a new feature on the Relentless School Nurse website: "What Happened at School Today?" The idea for this view from different health offices is the result of discussions with school nurses across the country who wanted to share their practice settings. Last year, Abby Pelletier and I shared pictures taken from our perspective health offices. I am in an urban NJ school and she is in rural NH, so the differences were quite distinct.

The Relentless School Nurse: Full Disclosure: I am Fearful to Welcome Another September

Robin M Cogan ·
School is about to begin and for the first time in my 18 years as a school nurse, I am fearful to welcome another September.

I travel throughout the city from school to school where drug dealing is an open-air exercise, but that is not my fear. Emergencies are often solitary experiences because school nurses work independently, but that is not my fear. Families facing deportation from...

Robin M Cogan ·
Pediatricians and school nurses are powerful partners when we intentionally collaborate to improve the continuity of care in the populations we serve. It is the intentionality of relationship building that can bear the most fruitful outcomes to improve the health and well-being of our most vulnerable population, our children. We are far more effective working in concert than in our silos. School communities are looking for guidance, answers, and action to address the explosion of...

Re: The Relentless School Nurse: Pediatricians + School Nurses = Powerful Partners

Hi Robin, Thanks so much for linking to your blog here! I wonder if you know of any existing collaborations between pediatricians and school nurses around ACEs prevention? It's great that you're writing about this, particularly because so many who are involved in preventing ACEs understand the need for cross sector collaboration. I wonder if you saw my article that was posted in ACEs in Pediatrics about Kavitha Selvraj, a pediatrician and former teacher, who is also a member of this forum.
