Hello School Nurses! It's been a minute since I've logged on. Forgive me in advance, this may be a little long. I need advice. You all have always come through with advice when ever I've posted on here. I'm back to ask the best for advice again. I've been a nurse over 10 years and a High School Nurse over 6 years now. There may be a great opportunity to apply at a middle school closer to my home in a different school district in the near future. I am really torn between leaving the high school I currently work at if I happen to get the job at the middle school. Here's a little more info that I've narrowed my list down to: Current job: Currently work with high schoolers. Best group of kids. I have really enjoyed working with this specific age group. 30 minute drive from home. Starting to see some things that are making me question lots of things about our district and the more I dig, the less happy I am. Seems like morale at my current campus has really gone down. Staff are leaving left and right. Pretty good school health department at the current district I work for. Prospective Middle school campus: 10 minute drive from home Smaller campus. May have a medical assistant assigned in the health clinic working with the school nurse. (This district seems really great about adding a CMA to campuses with a higher census of students). This district pays slightly better. ------------ I'm looking for input. I'd like to know what you might do if you were in my shoes. I know I haven't been offered the job yet. However, give me your experiences working with middle school students. Have any of you gone from the high school to the middle school setting? Any words of wisdom are greatly appreciated! Sincerely, Always & Forever ❤️ JustRNingAlong.
