*START RANT* Don't get me started on the "not nurses" (as I call them) that they have at the elementary schools in Fairfax County. My children are instructed to never go down to the "clinic" unless they are very, very sick. I got called from the "not nurse" to come pick up my child because she had a rash on her legs which was eczema. After my insistance that it was eczema and is recognizable as such by most of the lay population let alone someone who should have some medical training, and talking to the assistant principal, I finally convinced them I did not need to pick her up and bring her to the doctor to get a note.

I also got called twice when same daughter had red eyes from allergies (aide thought it was pink eye). She let it slide the first time when I insisted that she did not have pink eye (my daughter has had pink eye a lot so I know how goopy her eye gets). But the second call necessitated a trip to the doctor's and a $25 co-pay for the nurse practitioner to confirm that it was, in fact, allergies. (Nurse practitioner also complained how bad it was that the schools send them home and require notes for trivial things). Ugh. Sad that such a "great school district" that is the 12th largest in the nation cannot afford nurses for their students. *END RANT*

You could check the private schools for nurse job openings. The ones my children attended each had a full-time professional nurse.

Sounds like an interesting company. What do you do there? There seem to be a lot of academic-type positions, and I am not sure I would qualify for them.

Wow sorry I missed this message! I am the receptionist there. We have a lot of in-house openings like freelance work, customer service reps (inbound calls only), managerial positions, marketing, design, shipping/receiving positions... you name it. Research, etc. We have an Admin position now that does mostly paperwork (i am in the admin. area too). If you are interested I could give you a list of the current openings. Usually the notices we get are more thorough than the ones on the internet. I'll DM you this message too
