How many Male School Nurses are out there!

How many Male School Nurses are out there? I'm a school nurse at my alma mater high school. Curious to see who is one in NJ and in the US!

Welcome to the SN forum!

ONE OF US! ONE OF US! ONE OF US!

Not male, but I'm in PA about 10 minutes from the NJ border. 🙂

Hahaha! Love it! Spread the word! I want to know where my male school nurses at!

I'm not sure our relationship has developed enough to be "yours" yet...😻

Welcome!! Here is a tip for both male and female nurses which I implemented in my former HS clinic:

Have a filing cabinet drawer marked "Girl Stuff." That way kids can help themselves to pads without an extended convo.

The nurse at RJ Junior's school goes one step further and just puts pads in a basket on the table in front of the door. Seriously the girls don't even say hi anymore, they just open the door, grab what they need, and leave!

I like the idea and I also like the idea of normalizing period conversations. Junior high and high school girls should be comfortable talking about a normal bodily function and their male peers should be too. Having a male nurse who has no qualms about using correct terminology with no embarrassment while respecting the how much info a female student wants to share would be an asset to the health office!

This is a good idea. Before 5th grade moved down to the elementary level a few years ago, a package of pads would last me about 5 years. Not now!! 😳

Has nothing to do with male or female or normalizing...sometimes gals don't choose to engage in conversation, or they will with me but not if another student's present (which is....like 98% of the time). It's more about helping people go about their day as quickly as possible.
