I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Michelle. I'm a nurse at several autism/emotional support schools in my area. I love my job! The hours are great (Mon-Fri 8:30 to 4:00, no weekends no holidays) but better than that, the work is awesome. I do the typical school nurse stuff but in addition, I run an education program that teaches the students about nutrition, hygiene, sex ed, and als ways to keep from being victimized. Our students range from 5-21 years of age. They're all on the spectum but some have other issues as well like ADHD, ODD, RAD, etc. We also have medically fragile students with colostomies, seizure disorders, diabetes, and other medical issues.
I just found this forum and I'm so glad I did! I'll be posting here frequently so I look foreward to getting to know all of you!
