to my health office. A) it would help the non stop flow of little people coming into my office today and B) would hopefully prevent the headaches I get every single day when said little people slam my door open and closed.
36 days of work until my school nurse career comes to an end. Probably for good.
Long time oogler, appreciator, never a poster.
But for now, after 10 years, this is probably my last year of school nursing. Leaving for reasons of anonymity I can't say on social media. It's bittersweet. School nursing is a mixed bag of fun, great schedules, stress, boredom, the bizarre, the unexpected, and ER skills, counseling skills, case management skill. all the while the "public" thinks you're not a "real nurse." But I respect and applaud all school nurses: those that are good at it are good at a unique specialty that is hard to appreciate unless you've seen it.
Very best of luck to you, friend. That's what cool about nursing, and one of the things I love most about nursing, and something I've seen from years of just reading allnurses. Nursing gives smart and talented and dedicated nurses the chance to grow, either to become further specialists in their specialty of choice, or to move ahead and grow into another specialty, using their past experiences as a jumping of point to row further in another specialty. Anyone who survives nursing school has proven his/herself as being smart, flexible, and caring./ You have a fantastic chance to succeed in any new area, or any other career that you choose, and the knowledge and skills you've acquired, including those as a school nurse, will hopefully and rightfully help you to feel proud and confident as you move on.
Best of luck, best wishes, and God speed (however you define it)
