I got a "thanks for all you do, we appreciate it."  by the PTO president on her way out after setting up the teacher appreciation lunch that I wasn't invited to.

Yesterday we had  lice and then imagined lice from the same class (teacher: I know I saw a bug. Check the whole class. Me: nah).

And the home health nurse for fragile student did not show up (no call) so I became a g-button expert by the end of the day (I realize I had forgotten my hospital training - gather your supplies!).

Happy last day of nurses' week to me!!!!!

As we round out the week, on top of the card and potted plant from our principal, I was presented with personal letters and drawings from one Kinder class and one 1st grade class and today, the PTO rep told me I could take home the Alice-in-Wonderland themed centerpiece from the teacher appreciation luncheon that happened yesterday as "...it was Nurse's day some day this week!" 😂

Beggars can't be choosers!!

Thank you all for the humor and support!  So proud to be a part of the ranks.  Until you've done it, you cant understand what school nursing is about.  This site helps me to keep my sanity!!!

Ok--I take back my pity party (I wasn't actually that sad)--the other non-teaching staff members got me a bottle of wine and a card!

At the risk of being "Grinch-y" I have to admit mixed feelings about appreciation days/weeks for professionals. When I'm in a certain mood, they strike me as a bit...condescending.

I'm much happier to be in the staff birthday pool; we get cards and stuff then.

I feel the same way. (You'll notice there's no "orthopedic surgeon appreciation week"...)

Nonetheless, when I was offered half a leftover bagel and some cream cheese that had been at room temperature for two hours after the teacher appreciation breakfast, I still took it :)

Sometimes I think we can get caught up in this professionalism stuff, but I always remember PA's and NP's are mid-levels, making nurses, well you get it.😉
