    I know we all love our schedule but seriously, we should demand and be paid for our expertise. No doctor would put up with this, regardless of how much time they got off or benefits they receive. Our profession, and our specialty in particular will forever be considered in terms of supplying Band-Aids unless and until we can educate administrators and parents about what we REALLY do all day. For those of us that are lucky enough to be considered faculty and part of the union, that's great. HOWEVER, we STILL have more educational requirements, certifications, and specialty expertise than the starting steps appreciate. No school nurse should HAVE to work multiple jobs in order to make ends meet. We need to stick together somehow. Rant over
    AGREE!! Teachers have the same great schedule (I do realize that they often bring work home with them, but still). But, most of them in my school are pushing $100,000+ a year. Somehow, I should accept my $40k a year, shut up, and enjoy the summers off (while working my per diem job). Teachers have a very powerful union... Nurses in my district are not unionized.

    I don't expect to make the same as teachers, since many of them do hold master's degrees and I only have a bachelor's. But, sheesh, can I at least make what the custodian makes???

    My great grandma was a nurse way back when, I think she was born in the 1890s. Anyway, she was the head nurse at a local hospital, and she took home six babies without adoption papers or anything like that. My papas birth mom was a teenage mother and asked her if she would take the baby and she did.
    Wow! That is amazing. I'd probably be the exact same way, taking home every unwanted baby until I was living like the old woman in the shoe... LOL
