Bush Bulldog Clinic

All the important info YOU need to know

Author Archive


My name is Jennifer Arbeiter and I am proud and happy to be the Registered Nurse for the Bush Middle School Bulldogs. This is my 5th year as a school nurse for NEISD but I have been a nurse since 2001. I’ve been able to gain great experiences in nursing in many settings including med-surg, physical rehabilitation, pediatrics, women’s services and camp nursing. It’s a privilege to care for people in all ages and stages from a newborn taking her first breath to an old man taking his last. I think nursing is a unique profession that allows me the ability to interact with all people of all ages in a distinctly personal way. I love spending time with my husband and children and our small zoo of cats, dogs and chickens. For fun I like to go camping, hiking, and caving and my favorite vacations include visits to our beautiful National Parks. I look forward to meeting you and caring for your student.

It’s healthier? Not really…

Gaming addiction, is this a real disorder?


“Andrew Newberg, M.D., a neuroscientist at the Marcus Institute of Integrative Medicine at Jefferson Health, has devised a way to illustrate some of the physiological and structural changes happening to gamers. He wants to compare a gamer’s brain to a non-gamer’s brain to see how the response to different stimuli affects them. Amado, a 12-year-old […]

Speaking of breakfast!


I grew up in the DFW area and was never confused about what is a kolache. Apparently this is just a South Texas thing? But soon after we moved here in the early 2000s I had my first “but that isn’t a kolache” disappointment. let’s let Texas Monthly set you straight! If it’s not Sweet […]

They need to eat breakfast


I tell students all day erryday they need to eat a good breakfast in the morning. They often come to the clinic in the late morning before lunch with complaints of stomachaches and headaches. Guess what? They haven’t had anything to eat yet. Turns out, that nagging from the school nurse really is just good […]

Don’t put ice (or anything else) on a burn


I have come across multiple home remedies for burn care but the one I see most often is ice. Do not put ice on a burn! First aid for small minor burns involves running cool water over the affected area or using a cool damp compress if running water is not available. Ice (and other […]

Full time School Nurses are essential


In NEISD we have a full time Registered Nurses at every single campus. Each nurse must have a minimum Bachelor’s of Science degree. Other districts are not so lucky…   “Parkes said the shooting convinced him that it is nothing less than “obscene” that schools do not have full-time nurses.“

We all deserve a fabulous week off!



PLEASE talk to your kids about Vaping


I recently had a student tell me “There is nothing in it. It’s just ‘vape juice’” Please help your kids understand that there is no such thing as something with “nothing” in it. “E-cigarettes are battery-powered smoking devices. They have cartridges filled with a liquid that usually contains nicotine, flavorings, and chemicals. The liquid is […]
