    UG! I know! Soooo many field trips!! I have been tracking down kids with listed allergies but no epi in the office to make sure they carry epi with them and that we have paperwork that says they can. 2 huge field trips are coming up with over 100 kids going (to a theme park and to the state capitol). I also don't feel like calling out the kids who have extended noted to be out of PE but somehow feel well enough to walk around for 10+ hours and go on roller coasters... Nope, not gonna do it.

    The 1st grade lice epidemic was my fault this year...I heard one of the moms sharing this info in the hallway. THEN, she announced it on our school's facebook page. That was the peak of my school year. I literally give our kids lice THEN, when I inspect for lice I lie and say it's not there so the lice will grow and multiply.

    MWAHAHAHA!

    Our School Nurse job description doesn't even require that you be a nurse. It just says: moron that just fell off turnip truck. Preferred: JACKASS tattoo on forehead.

    My kids came in for hugs today. Citing "anxiety", but they missed me.

    I know but I will be super busy and it won't be the same.

    And no fetch Wednesdays for me anymore. RNs wear navy scrubs with white tops.

    They may not even want me.
    I'll keep you guys posted.
    But that pink shell bra showing through the white top would be, so, well, you know, fetch!

    I might give it up.
    I was so happy today at my old stomping ground and... Gah!!!
    I don't know.
    I'm going to start with my follow up and take it from there.
    You would still need to hang out with us!!

    I get a PENSION. In my state, school nursing can pay into teacher's retirement and that is worth it's weight in gold. In MA, school nursing pay isn't great, but to be honest, prior to nursing I worked in higher ed administration. I make 25%+ more than I made in higher ed as a school nurse and I get summers and school vacations off.

    I know my schedule. I'm married, with no kids (unless my dog and cat count). But I have an active social life and do a lot of theater in my downtime and could never do with an unpredictable hospital schedule.

    Plus, I started the health education program at my charter school. I love teaching health. Love it. And the kids. I love the kids.

    Of course, I'm preaching to the choir for many here. To each their own. OP - glad your friend is sticking around for another year. But as someone else suggested, she can try picking up another job. If she likes school nursing, she can try and get a camp job this summer - especially if she is single and willing to travel.

    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.

    Why do you do it if you hate it? Your kids deserve someone who is all in for them.

    Yes, it's a lot of "mommy skills" but so many kids need that. Lots of homes may not be the most nurturing. So if that's what they need that day, that's what I give them. Tomorrow they may need a counselor, another day a nurse. That's one of the things I live about school nursing...I get to wear lots of hats.
    Yes. It's the thing I love the most. I'm in it for the kids, that's for sure. And they know that.

    Just another yokel that it would seem didn't actually take the time to read the thread and look around the environment and assumes that we school nurses are in nursing school... like i'd do THAT again!

    If i had it do do all over again i'd go to trade school for welding.
    Flare- I "Liked" your comment for your first sentence about a "yokel". Not the part that you would be a welder if you did it all over again. Then, we would never have gotten to "know" you.

    Sad part about reading all this from you nursing students (Not one myself) is that these individuals who clearly don't give a **** about there career nor patient care GOT ACCEPTED INTO THIS PROGRAM when Im sure there is plenty of other candidates who got denied that actually want to help people and strive for this career choice.

    How does the selection process even work? IF they don't encorporate interviews I think they should start doing interviews and test runs on candidates to see how they're. Or give hte instructors power to remove a student for not 'caring' enough. I mean these people are going to have patient lives in there hands and yet they get to breeze by in nursing school? Such bs




    i am lost, wrong thread perhaps??? FWIW I agree with MaltyChick

    Please look to see where you are posting. This section is for school nurses, not nursing students. We are all nurses who have gone to school, finished school, and chosen to work at as the nurse in a school.

    The question at hand is what might be a reason to leave working in the school environment to go to bedside nursing. Please do not come out of the gates swinging when a little attention to detail could have saved you the time.
