September brings us back to many things; back to school, back to favorites of autumn and back to a fall routine after the fling of summer. Since it is back to school for our teenagers, I wanted to bring some awareness to a growing problem that is in the news today. Rather than swapping pencils and homework assignments, many teens are swapping prescription pills that they took from their parents’ medicine cabinets. School nurses are getting actively involved in trying to educate and prevent this oftentimes deadly problem.
Another story that is heard in the news constantly is the economy and the shortage of jobs. How is the economy affecting nurses today and what is the outlook for the future? Please read on for some interesting answers.
Hoping to hear from our nurses! Send in an article for reprint in our newsletter or just comment on something you.
