Hello Fellow Nurses,
I just joined AN, thought I'd try posting...
I am a new grad RN (ADN). I started as a K-6 school nurse at the start of the 2012-2013 school year. I was very discouraged by the lack of orientation and guidance I received upon hiring, so much so that I put in my notice to resign after only about a month. When my last day rolled around the district still had not found a replacement for my position, and I was starting to find my flow as a school nurse, and so I had a change of heart. 4 months in and I really love my job! The kids keep me smiling, the schedule can't be beat, and I now enjoy the autonomy that almost lead me to quit.
I will be back again soon to post questions and vents... I have been saving them up for awhile now!
