I've been with the current 5th grade since they were in kindergarten. Sadly, while they have all gotten taller, a lot of them have not grown up. 6 years is quite enough!

I worked junior high for 14 years and felt the same way! There were definitely those that I really hated to see leave, then again....there were those that I was so thankful I only had 2 years to deal with.

Yikes!  You get no relief or hope of shipping them off unless they move.

Good grief, you school nurses have to deal with alot of fakes and manipulation. And I think alot of whatbtoure dealing with is because the parents didn't want to deal with it, so they dump it on you. 

I don't remember there ever being a school nurse when I was in school, and all the way up to and thru HS. When did it become such a Good idea to have one?

When kids who previously died at childbirth or early on, lived and are entitled to a FAPE, a free approropiate public education, under federal law. When medically complex (think kids with G-tube, respirator etc) are in the district. When increasing numbers of children are diagnosed with diabetes or anaphylaxis. I could go on for days. If you are retired, you may not have had kids with these issues in your classroom. Its a whole new ball game.

Ok, good answer. Changing times, apparently. 

But no I never worked as a nurse in school or the classroom,in any capacity. I worked at a facility designed for mentally and physically handicapped children and adults. It was licensed as a LTC. My main duty was passing meds.

Children who live in LTC now often attend public schools and classroom nurses or additional school nurses are hired in addition to the building nurse to meet their needs.   I was a classroom nurse for a medically complex room for years before becoming a building nurse. Most people are surprised when they hear these programs exist now, because unless they have experienced it themselves through family/friends, there isn't a reason to know they exist.
