I go to school with my client. It's something that I'm still getting used to, because I happened to start with my client at the beginning of summer, where it was just me and them for the summer, and we did whatever I wanted, nobody (besides mom) to answer to, MY own schedule, etc.
As for the school, well, I don't do anything with him that has to do with education. There is a teacher and two aides in the room I'm in, along with 6 other students.
I'm there for nursing interventions, feeding, assessment. When the teacher is doing her "thing", I back off, but keep my client in full view at all times. If my client is agitated, I will enforce what I believe mom would want. (extra time on the mat, extra cuddling, more frequent position changes, etc.)
Hopefully you will be in a room with an understanding (flexible) teacher. Although the teacher for my client is nice, they are pretty well set in their ways, and sometimes I feel like she would rather not have any nurses in the room, because it may interfere with the teaching or with what they want to do. (I'm not the only nurse in this room). The teacher in our room wants to be involved in EVERY aspect, and I've had to ask her to back off, because I'm the nurse and there are things that I need to do that she does not.
To sum this up, take the job if you're interested. Give it a try. There will be both positives and negatives, as with any job. I came from LTC to peds, didn't know how long I would last, but I LOVE this. And going to school (as frustrating as it can be on some days) DOES break up the day with my client.
Let us know what you decide, and when you start, what you think!
