So, I work in a district that has 5 schools
. Each school has 1 nurse, and we have a district nurse who is certified in school nursing, who oversees us. She is the one who did my initial interview, and who I communicated with prior to being hired. She is the one in charge of our meetings, etc. However, I feel like I often have two bosses, since the administrators at my school often have different ideas of what my responsibilities include (for example- on Institute days, the other nurses all use the day to catch up on office work, but my administrator wanted me to sign up for the classes with the teachers-- none of the classes have to do with my job, really).
I guess I don't really know who my ultimate boss is, and I was wondering if anyone else has any similar experience or advice. I often feel like I'm being told to do 2 different things by the district nurse and the administrator (who has a reputation of being on a power trip...so fun). I don't want to be in a bad place with him, but of course the district nurse has a better, more realistic idea of what my job entails. I already feel unsupported by administration, and don't want to worsen the situation. I feel like I'm regarded as an associate half of the time, and a teacher half of the time. (Unfortunately, I'm paid like an associate, but expected to be here on conference days, and to keep the same hours as a teacher).
