    Default Need your stories for School Nurse Journal articles

    I'm a member of the National Diabetes Education Program Children and Adolescents Work Group. Janet Silverstein, MD, from Florida and I have volunteered to prepare three articles for a school nurse journal, and I'm looking for help from the CWD community to provide input for the articles. Specifically, I'm looking for your experiences in the following areas:

    1. Teens and School Nurses ? We're looking for teens with type 1 diabetes who have had a particularly good experience with their school nurse. We'd like to hear how the nurse has made a difference in the life of the teen. We'd like to hear from the teen, the nurse, and potentially a parent and school administrator. The goal is to showcase school nurses who have made a positive impact on the life of a student. We'll publish a couple of these stories.

    2. Teen Athletes and Coaches ? We're looking for high school students with type 1 diabetes who have had a coach who has helped them to succeed in their sport while being supportive of their diabetes. We'd like to hear from the student and their coach and will publish a couple of stories.

    3. Successfully Communicating with Schools ? We're looking for parents to share stories of successful communication strategies with schools. Kids can be any age. We'd like to hear from the parent, the school support team (nurse, administrator, etc.) and the health care team if appropriate. The goal is to identify and share simple strategies that can make a big difference. We'll publish a couple of these stories.

    The best way to share your experience for these articles is to send an email to info@childrenwithdiabetes.com. If you can, please send a photo ? I want to include them in the published articles.

    This is a great chance to showcase school staff who make a difference for our kids.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    So It does not need to be a "school Nurse", but more so the staff that helps with D care no matter their positions?

    Is this for an academic journal ? I never knew it was okay to solicit a certain quality of experience (positive ) for qualitative / phenomenological research.

    The journal is for school nurses, so my preference is nurses.

    And the articles are similar to many others that the NDEP has provided for this journal.

    We have an amazing school nurse - I feel so blessed to have her support. It's the relationship that I would have asked for if I could have.

    What is the next step? Should I get her permission?

    Default "school" nurse

    We don't have school nurses here in Ontario schools but our daughter was lucky enough to have a Nurse "assigned" to her from kindergarten to grade 2 full-time and grade 3 for snacks and lunch- this year grade 4 she's on her own.
    Not sure if you wanted just U.S experience with school nurses?
