I'm with Old Dude, I prefer the younger kiddos over high school. But I would much rather be at one location than two. Given those two options I would probably go with High School.
Do what is best for you.
PK thru 8 at 2 locations is a stretch. Even though I'm totally elementary, if I had to choose between these two options I'd go with high school at one location. Only my opinion
... than getting to the last line, the LAST 5 DAYS on your MAR or blood sugar log?!?! I might be doing a happy dance right now
Have a great summer!
I would say an evening starting out on the beach with with Milla Jovovich wearing one of those $3500.00 mermaid costumes would be better than that...No never mind, what you mention would be better in the long run.
I'd like to have a trap door in front of my desk...for the PARENT who either starts talking to me while I'm on the phone and just stands in front of my desk waiting for me to get off the phone; push one button - and they're gone!
Not supposed to talk about post-graduation plans?? Wow.
I have a kid who will be promoting from 8th grade here in a few weeks and the admin had a meeting with all the parents and the kids and they talked about how important this jump to high school is and they talked about plans after high school and they mentioned community colleges, universities, the military, tech schools, etc.
How rude! Expecting kids to pay attention and do well in high school so they can educate themselves further afterwards and get a job! ?
A usually quiet and reserved student stopped by yesterday just to chat and write me this note:
You make everyone feel better no matter how bad the case is! Thank you for caring about everyone who walks through the door! THANK YOU!
He's not much of a talker, comes in for whatever he needs and leaves, so I never would've guessed he felt this way. It melted my heart. And reminded me that what we do DOES make a difference, it's just hard to see it everyday.
Keep on keepin' on, SNs, summer's almost here!
I'm so tired of stupid stuff...don't talk to seniors...don't check on kids by name...
I'm so over it...
After dealing with the stress of making sure my son graduates high school (ended up with a 60.3 in one class), being sick alllllll year, nursing my mother in law who just had hip surgery(my inlaws live with us), worrying about my own parent's health, and worrying about my husband potentially being laid off.....
Of course, I have a long to-do list for the summer around the house, etc.
Tomorrow night...they're all just warming up
Student was out for three days with a cold. Parents send them back today. They were here for one hour and the teacher thinks they need to go home because of the cold..............GEEEEEEEZZZZZZ.......the parents want them back in school. No fever, color is good. No nasal drainage, No cough and doing quite well upon my assessment. Heck...they have to return some time. Why don't you just teach and I'll play the nurse..........K ?
I thought the 15 self inflicted staples in the leg was way up there but the screwdriver through the hand takes the prize. That is pretty C'mon on now!!
Parent comes into my office yesterday. Wanted to see if I could take care of her. Hand is wrapped in a towel, which she unwraps to show me the screwdriver impaled all the way through and out of the other side of her hand! Decided to drive to school, get her 8th grader, and then come to see me. Sure, let me set up my sterile field and draw up my stock lidocaine so I can numb you up before I pull the screwdriver out and mess up one of your nerves or an artery!
Seriously, c'mon on!!!!
I work, but not in nursing. I have two PAID technical theater gigs this summer for two different children's theater camps. I do a lot of volunteer theater work that getting paid for it is awesome and extra funds are appreciated .
(And I try not to put my school nursing hat on at camp...but it comes out now and then.)
I'm also going to Whistler in Canada for five days.
26 school days to summer for me!
