Less than 25 minutes after arrival at school student comes down just not feeling well, feels nauseous and his stomach hurts then proceeds to tell me he was throwing up all last night but mom wanted him to try to go to school today! C'MON!!!
Shocking update-mom's phones are all going to voicemail.
I don't have any other Nurse's in my district. The nurses from 2 other local districts and I all serve as a sounding board for one another at times. I always make sure the student could not be identified by the information I am giving and we all know that any information shared is confidential. It has worked really well for us.
54 days left. but who's counting?
The nurse before me was here for about 7 years but when she left they had subs for about 2 months before they found me. We are a 1 building district so I was on my own from day 1 which was very interesting. At the end of year 1 I went through every cabinet, closet, shelf and drawer in my office and got rid of so much stuff! There were old books discussing the "mentally retarded", feminine product boxes advertising "no belt needed" and lots of other out of date goodies to be found. We had a lot of laughs when I was going through everything!
I just picked one a long time ago because I hated seeing it blank. In my mind it's me all sweet and smiling on the outside even when people are driving me crazy and I'd love to give them a big shot of what I'm really thinking.
