    so here is a question to all my nurse family..did you all feel the first few days, weeks, or heaven help me months as new nurse that the job is crazy hard? Like staying two hours past your normal time to chart? Like you love this job but what the hell did you get yourself into?!? New nurse soooo glad it's my FRIDAY!! First solo week done!

    Yes, yes and yes!!! I still ask myself that 14 years later!

    Do you have the ability to update the emergency cards with pertinent school health happenings, during a period of relative calm? That way they would be accurate, right?

    And maybe you could get parents to update them at least each semester with news from the home part of the students' lives.




    School nurses, you know what I mean

    Yes, it's true. I've decided the school doesn't need me, they only need someone who can call home. Kinda like a robot. Nursing judgment, eh, what does that mean??? My school is filled with special snowflakes who need to go home immediately if experiencing any discomfort at all (real or perceived), including the "I don't feel like being here any more" flu". Never mind that there's absolutely no signs or symptoms of illness or injury. So, I have taken the liberty to create my own, new job description:

    Wanted
    Nurse-like figure needed for school clinic. Must be able to call multiple phone numbers constantly during the day. Strong forefinger to hit buttons over and over again on phone desired. Must be able to handle the occasional angry, cursing parent who doesn't want to come get their "sick" child. The ability to detect BS is not required. Note: critical thinking skills and practicing nurse judgment is not required, and not welcome.

    I'm having one of those weeks

    Aww, thanks everyone (((hugs back))). Yup, it's been a bad one. A small sampling of recent conversations had with parents: Today, for example, I discovered I had the ability to create a fever in a second grader! I admit it - it's my fault your little one had a fever. You're on to me, Mom! I take pleasure in taking little ones who are perfectly healthy, then waving my magic wand and making them have a fever so you'll have to come pick them up. And we won't even discuss what choice words Dad had for me when I called to tell him about said fever his son had, because I couldn't find Mom.
    Yesterday, another Mom asked me if I was happy she was going to lose her job because she can't get rid of the lice in her kids hair because, after all, (are you ready for the chorus, all together now!) "It's the school's fault they keep getting them". Yes, I take pleasure in that, too. 'Tis my little secret that keeps me going throughout the day. Oh wait, here's another one...."You're calling me too much. Stop calling me when special snowflake throws up. I don't have time to keep coming to the school every time it happens"

    Ya know, some days I can handle it, and some days I-just-can't-anymore. It does seem like the I-just-can't days this year have far outweighed the good days. It's been rough since day 1.

    Sigh. Please forgive me for hijacking my own thread, though I did think of another criteria to add to my revised job description, so here it is:

    Ability to remember "Dialing for Dollars" also helpful.

    Again, thanks everyone. It really helps me feel less alone when you all seem to understand.

    P.S. I miss Far! Did she ask our permission to go on this so-called field trip? I think not!

    I would like to respectfully ask the Admins not to put this on FB. I really feel beaten up this week. This is the only place where I can come where I feel understood.
    Thank you.
