    NQN's arn't the only ones. I have a BSc Child branch, and am just about to get my Post Grad Dip as a specialist community public health nurse (School Nurse). i have 7 years behind me, i cant even get a school nurse job.

    just to add to the above, the main responsibility for delivering sex ed remians with the parents to educate their children as well. after all they brought them into the world and brought them up to be who they are now! People just look for scape goats all the time instead of looking at their own parenting skills.

    i agree and disagree with both of the above. im just coming to the end of my specialist community public health nursing post grad dip course for school nursing. however there are no jobs. all jobs are frozen. i dont have a job as a SCPHN or school nurse when i finish in 8 days time. I do agree that we should go into schools more a provide more teaching on sex ed, as its not the teachers who cant teach it, its the fact that they dont want to teach it. But we do have to work collaborativly. so teachers are just as much to blame for this. You also have to look your case load at present, because as we are all aware child protection cases have to take a priority. and if they are not replacing staff who are leaving at the moment, what else are we meant to do if there is no money to recruit?
