Congrats to you and good luck in your next adventure!
Welcome Back! I first came on here in 2011. This board has changed in those 5 years, it is a lot busier now! Lots of fun coworkers to chat, vent, laugh and learn with! It'll be quiet until someone comes back in August. My school just ended last week so I am off to the beach...
Kids still here for 1/2 day today and tomorrow and then you will find me with my toes in the sand reading a good book!
My first field day experience in school nursing: they let the student severely allergic to eggs participate in the egg toss (despite warnings from me and the kid's parent). An egg broke all over his arm right before the egg toss ended (last event of the day). Hives up and down the kid's entire arm.
You and me, just like last year.
The last week has FINALLY arrived!!!! I am doing my happy dance!
Good luck! The orientation is HUGE! SO many of us started with none! My first few weeks were figuring out what my job actually was! Ask questions here, it's quiet now that most of the school nurse's are off on summer vacation but come Fall there are a lot of people ready and willing to help! We have all been there!
I just want to say thank you again to all of you who get it. I'm not a big complainer but these past few weeks have just been ridiculous! I just knew you guys would help perk me up and get me through top the end. I have 1 week left and then break! I will make it and even come out with a smile on my face and I'll be ready to see all the kids again come September. Being the only nurse here is sometimes frustrating and lonely and I am so thankful to have "co-workers" in all of you who make me laugh and can commiserate. Enjoy your summer off! You DESERVE the break!
I'm here! But 8 more days for me! Lots to get done before the end and still have Field Day coming! Ackkkkkkkk!
Well you knew that WE would get it!!!
Speaking for the vast majority of nurses that do NOT get an entire summer off, I am having trouble arousing sympathy in this case.
Thanks everyone! I'm feeling a bit better today (maybe because it's Friday). This end of year has been the hardest by far of all my years. Thankfully a few weeks on the beach will cure me of all the grumpiness! Happy Friday!
I am right there with you! Everyone at my school is feeling it this year.
I did my supply order for next year which helped my mood. I'm a dork, though, because ordering supplies takes me to my happy place.
OK please send me some encouraging words to get me through the next 2 weeks! I am grumpy and tired and just feel like whining or laying my head on my desk. I don't want field day or moving up day or summer birthday celebration day I just want it to be summer vacation!!! The adults in and outside of the building are driving me more nuts than the kids at this point and I just need parole!
We do not have central ac in our school but each classroom does have a window unit which appears at the end of May and disappear mid September.
