Feel like a record keeper. . .

  1. 0 Hello everyone! I have been working as a school nurse for about 2 months now and I feel more like a record keeper than a nurse! I'm a new grad with an ADN, so I wa not able to get into the hospital, so I ended up in a K-8 school. I am doing my BSN online and will have to next October.

    I never realized how much paper work going into being a school nurse! I do feel overwhelmed at times with everything to do and seeing the kids on top of it. It also doesn't help that the health office I came into is a mess and here I am to clean it up. Overall, I do really enjoy the kids and you can't beat the hours!!

    Any suggestions or tips for me as a new nurse/school nurse? Thanks!
