I mostly love my job. I'm the school nurse in a small elementary school. Almost 100% of the student body lives in poverty, 50% speak Spanish as a first language, and these kids are the best behaved, sweetest kids you've ever met. Very polite. I don't get paid nearly what I could make at a hospital, but I go in a 8am and get off on time every day at 2:30pm. I get my 30 min sit-down lunch every day and the front office treats my lunch like an inviolable promise. They do not call me out unless somebody has stopped breathing. Once they even refused to put a doctor through! Made her call back later.
No nights, no weekends, no holidays, no call. Two and a half months off in the summer, 1 week for Thanksgiving, 1 week for Christmas, a week in Feb and 1 week spring break in April. And everybody loves me! I walk down the hall and I hear, "HI, Nurse D!" and "That's my nurse!" :redpinkhe Who wouldn't love this job?
