We were out two days last week because of the cold and now it's in the 60's. I just hate the imaginary injuries that come with recess.

I can almost count down to the minute specific students will come in after they see me walk by their room or in the hall... Suddenly, a phantom boot has hit them in the head, or they need vaseline for their lips at 2:55p... 

 

This is my ENTIRE second grade class. I literally hide from them because if I don't, they will bug their teacher incessantly until she sends them to me! Poor girl, she's always apologizing to me for her class! God love her because she certainly tries to keep them at bay 🙂

This is my 2nd grade and 4th grades; The poor teachers.... And the kids can be so manipulative, too. I've been "leaving it up to [the] parents" a lot these past two weeks.... I have no reason to send you home, but if Mom wants to come grab you, she is more than welcome....

When things fall into place and you actually have a good C'MON NOW moment!!! I sort of had an inkling that SPED aide sending kid home for illness without checking with me. I just sort of let it ride because my attendance clerk and I have such a great system for tracking who I send home and excuse (and I only had an inkling - no confirmation).  I was pretty confidant it would come to light. Mom calls VP when she gets letter for unexcused absences. Well, VP asks for my documentation - none, since I did not send home or even know about. The kid was sent home for loose stools - well, she is on mirelax so she was sent home more for the aide's comfort in cleaning her than the kid. The aide looked like she wanted to fall through the floor because she knew she overstepped her boundaries. Principal puts foot down and says "only nurse can send ill kids home."

During my community nursing clinical, I had this experience. A high school student would come in within the first two minutes after morning bell crying her eyes out. Every day. The tears would abruptly stop with the ringing of the bell for second period. Said student would calmly wipe her eyes, thank the school nurse for the tissues, and go to second period. The school nurse promptly called the parents and relayed her concerns. The parents didn't care, and said that at least their daughter was at school. C'MON!

School nurse recommended "science class once daily at 9am for 1 hour Monday to Friday, related to a severe case of hypo-scienceism." The student was not compliant with treatment. Hypo-scienceism leads to educational failure, as evidenced by the F on the student's report card.

I was sent a photo of a teacher's very swollen knee. She was on the class ski trip and fell. She was in the ER but didn't trust the doctors. "BiscuitRN, what do you think it is?" Had to put my x-ray goggles on.

I'm not a school nurse, but this is right up there with my MIL calling me and  putting the phone to her chest after asking, "Does this sound like angina to you?" Why yes, your crappy landline doth transmit perfectly the auscultatory notes of angina to mine nursing ears. 

MIL didn't have angina, by the way. I was treated to a long fart while the phone was on her chest followed by a hasty, "Oh my! It was just gas! I feel better now! Thanks nurse!"

I'm cracking up--my sister recently starting subbing in elementary.  I talk to her a lot about work, and she sends me a text "I understand what you mean now."  The kids are all trying to go see the nurse.  A first grader had a scab on their ear and wanted to see the nurse.  My sister says no.  The first grader continuously picks at her ear to make it bleed then yells "CAN I GO TO THE NURSE NOW?"

I will be honest, don't do this. As an adult with ADHD-I and was suppose to be medicated as a child and never way, I wish I was. I got medicated as an adult and I'm doing better. I wish I had this done earlier, and my school and social life would've been better as a kid.

If you can help him now, he would be more thankful later. 

The most effective (arguably ONLY treatment for severe ADHD symptoms) is medication. 

Just like the effective treatment for diabetes type 1 is insulin. Sure, you can modify the diet and monitor blood sugar levels, but the insulin is still needed because the pancreas does not work correctly. 

In ADHD, the brain is not functioning typically and medication is needed.
