    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.

    My students just scream my name through the bathroom door. I can never pee in peace.

    Yes! lol Most of the time they will stand by the door and knock. I'm pretty sure I come out of that bathroom like a banshee ready hurt someone.

    I have a bathroom in my clinic. I had to go pee. I was getting ready to flush when I heard kids walk into my clinic and say, "She isn't in here...let's go look for her." I never moved. I was like a ninja. They left. Let the game Marco Polo begin!!

    Also, a kindergartner today asked me if I was an expert of the body and I said, "I think a doctor is more of an expert than a nurse." She yelled out, "I had surgery on my butt!" Perfect! Oy vey.

    Did you study prior to test (if so what resource?) or rely on previous and current experience to answer questions?

    Nurse (First name)


    Doctor (First name) The smaller kiddos will call me Doctor but I don't have the energy or time to correct and explain that I am a Nurse. They all know I'm a nurse but yet some yell out "Doctor!".

    I'm still waiting on that MD paycheck.

    There is no reason she should not be using an albuterol inhaler, with a spacer of course; unless her doctor is one of those who thinks the neb treatment is more effective - which it's not. If that's the case it's time to change doctors.
    Exactly. Spacer is the key!

    I can look at it both ways because a student does not make it down the clinic without passing it through a teacher.....where is the common sense judgement of our staff? Some days I swear they don't have any.

    I only have two suggestions:

    1. Stop believing you are stupid, stop saying it, stop typing it, stop thinking it. You are sabotaging your own success and using it as an excuse.

    2. Focus on the here and now. Focus on getting back into the program. Focus on passing one exam at a time. Focus on why you feel you failed basic fundamentals of nursing.

    You can do it....if you believe it and want it. Hang in there! I wish you all the best.

    Our last day of school this year is May 13th, which is absurd to me. We could easily go another 1-2 weeks and have more time off during the year.

    When do you guys start the year?

    I had both my kiddos before I was 21yrs old. My husband (their dad) and I are now empty nesters and we are 44yrs old. LOVE our time together without the kids and we are still young and healthy. If I had a new infant at my age I would not have the energy. Bless those moms out there who do have children over 40yrs old. You rock!

    I have never understood why teachers/staff want to send behavioral issues to the clinic. Makes no sense. So, you want a perfectly healthy kid to sit in my clinic next to a kid vomiting, running a temp, or weird rash? Typically, the problem kids are all over the clinic anyways....touching everything...and running around. I have never allowed non-sick kids to sit in my clinic for any length of time.
