Snowy and 100kids- any other NY nurses- do you have Friday off because of our lack of snow days?
I was thinking insurance too. Any accident which happens at school, the school insurance covers what your private insurance does not. I wouldn't read too much into it. I have an accident report that gets filled out on anything I refer to a Dr or is serious enough that they may need medical care outside of school related to the incident. I would provide your administration what you have and let them release what they want.
When my 6th graders graduate and move on to the junior high I always get emotional about it. I love when they come back to visit me!
I agree with my Elementary friends. I prefer the little ones but would pick 1 location over 2 every time. Good luck!
Well we still have 5 weeks left of school but in July and August I will be spending most of my days in a beach chair or out on the boat. I. Can't. Wait.
I had no one medical in the room when I interviewed so even though they asked triage type questions they weren't so worried about how I answered but that I had an answer and was able to justify my actions. A lot of my questions were situation dealing with parents, frequent flyers, problem teachers and adult injuries of staff. Good luck!
This whole time I thought you were in NY.
I always say I appreciate my job the most when I'm sitting in a chair down at the beach day after day each summer! That extended time off gives me time to recharge and prepare for the next school year.
I have Dale Mabry afternoons
i am DESPERATELY trying to switch with someone who has Southshore afternoons
OOOh it makes me crazy when they come in already diagnosed by the teacher in the classroom! I think we should send them back saying the nurse said to give me a 100 on the test.
Happy School Nurse's Day to my favorite coworkers!
Just make sure you understand the money involved as well, or lack there of. Many people are shocked to find out they will get paid significantly less being a School Nurse. The hours and the time off are amazing! Maybe you could ask at your local school if you could shadow their School Nurse a few days when you're off just to get a feel for what it's like.
I am a big stickler when it comes to manners and the kids in my school know it. If they come in and bark out ice pack, I might bark back, cell phone when they look confused I just ask "Were you looking to ask me for something? I thought we were just yelling the names of items to one another". I get very cranky when kids aren't taught manners. It's not too much to ask for a please and thank you!
