Hello! I'm new to allnurses and I'm new to school nursing, but I've been a nurse since 2002. I've been lurking for a few weeks, and you seem like a smart, experienced bunch
I've always wanted to work in a school setting, but finally made the leap this year. I have worked in mental health (adolescent, adult and geriatric), outpatient research, and had a brief stint in the ER and in medsurg.
I'm lucky enough to work in the district where my daughter attends school, and this schedule has really been a dream. I'm quickly learning that nurses are not regarded the same in a school as they are in a hospital, but overall, things have been great.
Anywho, here I am...
