My head is still spinning
I went to drop off health forms for my 5 year old going into K and walked out with a 4 month sub school nurse position at the high school. Wow!!! The current nurse is on long-term-leave due to injury so I'll have essentially no in-house orientation. I'm spending one afternoon at her home to go over paperwork, one day at school for a professional development day, and then I jump right and get to it.
I'm scared!! I've spent about a year on a very busy med-surge floor and other than school clinicals that's all the experience I have. It's a 1,000 student jr/sr high school setting. They have 5 well controlled diabetic students on pumps and one child taking anti-seizure meds who hasn't ever had any seizure activity at school. Other than it's a relatively healthy population I'll be working with.
Any advice? Words of wisdom? Or can one of you just come to work with me on my first day and hold my hand?
