    I have 2 nieces in my school and they call me Aunt XXX so some of their friends think they should be able to call me that as well. It's pretty funny.

    Welcome newbies! This is a great board and a great group coworkers! I'm in NY and don't start school till for a few more weeks so I'm still chilling at the beach but wanted to say hi!

    Not back until September 6th here. This is when I'm happy we don't get out until late June.

    Welome to all you newbies! This is a fun, comical and VERY useful forum but it's pretty quiet in the summertime. Come school it will be hopping!

    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!

    Quote from Jen-Elizabeth
    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.
    Whose bright idea was that? Seriously?

    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!

    Quote from Been there,done that
    Speaking for the vast majority of nurses that do NOT get an entire summer off, I am having trouble arousing sympathy in this case.
    Hence why I posted this in the School Nurse's Forum not the General Nursing Forum.

    It's adults who think our jobs are so cushy and so simple that add to the grumpiness the most! I chose this job for the daytime, weekday hours and holidays and summers off. With it comes some downsides including a serious decrease in pay. We all make our choices.
