I have just finished up my first year of school nursing in an elementary school. I have absolutely loved it! I have had concussions, broken bones, BG's in the 600's, nose bleeds, and booboos and that is besides all the screenings and physicals. But do I still count myself among those amazing men and women working 12 hrs, saving lives? Am I still just as important?I worked in the NICU and then a very busy High Risk L&D floor before taking this position. I am a young mom with a toddler, and this job fits our lifestyle great! I have no regrets taking this job -yes, sometimes I still miss the intensity and miracle of helping bring a life into the world- but this has been great for our family. But I have been struggling the most with wondering if what I do is important enough to command the respect that I did working in a hospital?
