    I don't care if you are gay, lesbian, straight, bi, transgender or any other name given.....all I want to know is......will you watch my 10 patients while I go pee?? I am an HIV activist and supporter of those with HIV/AIDS...I work with a large gay/lesbian/transgender population. Last time I checked....we all have bellybuttons. Well, except this guy named Frank....said it was a banana cart accident....you should have seen the monkey pushing it.

    Not really. :-) One Love my friends.

    I am only leaving school nursing to finish my Masters in Nursing Education and we are moving to Florida. Otherwise, I would NEVER EVER give up my job! I will cry buckets of tears when I leave in May. I will miss my wonderful staff, students and nurses I work with in my district.

    Our district has a policy that staff can be trained to give insulin if nurse is not in building.

    (I don't agree with policy)

    My son caused mass hysteria in his 3rd grade classroom one year. Apparently his tummy-ache was of such drama that one by one just about every other kid in the class had a tummy-ache too. The inexperienced teacher let all of them leave the classroom en masse to go see the nurse. :/ No, it was not food poisoning. My son just has a real flair.
    I had to laugh! I am a school nurse and just the other day I had a 1st grader come into office complaining of belly ache and said he threw up in the bathroom BUT no one saw it. Well, my policy is.....if you vomit you better make sure someone can vouch for it! Otherwise, you're going back to class. So, I sent him back to class and asked him to try and hang in there till lunch time.
    It was approx. 5 min later his teacher came into my office with paper towels and said, "He just vomited all over my classroom!"
    Me: "Score! He gets the golden ticket to go home then!" Uh, do I need to call the janitor?
    Teacher: Please.


    I totally LOVE my kids!

    I have "googled" myself to death tonight! lol Very interesting!!

    I work in a magnet school (enough said). I had a 6th grader come to me from art. Her hand was literally glued shut holding her pencil. Glued shut folks. I could not pry her hand open. I could not stop laughing. Finally, went to the science lab and grabbed a large beaker, filled it with warm water and soaked her hand for 20 minutes till the glue dissolved.
    Also had a 3rd grader playing on a walking bridge with metal railings outside. She got her leg stuck between the railings. More she pulled, the worse it got. They called me on the walkie and told me what was going on. I know half the school heard me yell,"I ain't no engineer!" So, as Doc Mcstuffins would do....I grabbed a jar of Vaseline and lubbed her leg up like a Thanksgiving turkey and that little sucker slid right outta there!
    Score! Nailed it!

    Wave Watcher - did you record the malady in your Big Book of Boo-Boos?

    To all you school nurses out there - I so enjoy reading your entries in this forum. Many things I would never have thought of so this is most informative. But threads like this one are precious.

    Salud to all of you.
    I have probably 100 hand made cards that each kid tells me exactly what I saw them for. lol I plan on making a portfolio with them so if I ever need to find another job I have at least 100 good references.

    I could write a book (as most nurses can) about all the chaos that ensues and it so hysterical it becomes like a comedy skit. I don't get paid enough for my job but the suspense of "What is going to happen today" keeps me going back. :-)
