Go to the nurse.

  1. So I've noticed a lot of students coming to me for things that are somewhat unnecessary. When asked about a situation, I'll ask "Did your tell your teacher?" student : "yes." me: "what did they say?" Student: "Go to the nurse."

    What do you consider reasons to NOT come to the nurse?

    I had this lovely note pad that teachers had to check off on symptoms in order for them to be seen by the nurse. Most teachers wouldn't send the kids down because of the inconvenience.

    "my gums are irritated" had this today - a 5th grader

    and there's always the completely nonexistent "nosebleeds" - I would like to call in a forensic analyst to detect a speck of blood anywhere on them

    Injury of over 48 hours (does not need ice); illness of five days' duration or more; "I need lotion"; scratch of three days' duration (doesn't need a band aid)....and clothing. I used to have pants for girls who had accidents during their periods and somehow I became the clothing closet for all of dress code noncompliance.....

    Students with spilled milk on clothing, broken shoes, needing new pants, wanting a jacket because they forgot one, asking me to check a new piercing for signs of infection, being tired from staying up all night, students who are hungry and looking for food (we don't provide food), students who want a bottle of water (try the vending machines or use the water fountain), students with athletic injuries (need to see the trainers for that), students on daily medication who are having behavior problems in class (the teacher who sees the behavior needs to contact the parent with their concerns), students I have never met who have hygiene problems, I could go on and on...

    I drew a hard line on this one when a teacher walked in a kid who stepped in dog poop at the busstop. NOPE! Not a medical concern. You can use my sink to clean it yourself. Here's some gloves. (kid was in 5th grade, plenty old enough to do it himself)


    I once had a teacher ask me to talk to a student about masturbating in class. Again, I said "Not a medical problem"
