Dress code issues are, by far, my favorite "nursing" task. In nursing school, we learned the perfect way to change from non-uniform into uniform to appease teachers and administration.

I, for one, went to a diploma school in the dark ages and I gosh-diddly-darn-well learned that in nursing school! 🤣

I had a cap and wore it for about a year after graduation...then it became an issue with infection control.

A remarkably stupid one. I liked it when I saw it in the school catalog but in actuality it looked ridiculous on me and got knocked on crib tops and IV poles. I kept forgetting that it added 3 inches to my height.

When it comes to Vaseline, I flat-out lie.  Vaseline?  What's vaseline? I don't have any. 

See...for the high schoolers, I had no Vaseline. I hate Vaseline. Here in PK-7 I find that the littles just.can.not if their lips are chapped. Unfortunately parents cannot manage to slip a chapstick in the backpack and/or the kids lose it immediately. It's a harmless intervention (even though I hate petroleum on lips).

I tell them - unless you saw the bug bite you there is no way to identify what bug the bite came from.  Unless it was a brown recluse, then that is a thing.

When I changed campuses several years ago, I refused to deal with clothing as a nursing issue. Or shoes or glasses. I will help anyone, but this is not a nursing issue. Any staff member may help with these issues. It made me unpopular with a few people, but I was still able to sleep at night.

I am anticipating the "my flip-flop broke" requests to start ramping up any minute now...

Flip-flops should be a wardrobe no-no as well. They are an injured ankle waiting to happen...

My warm weather mantra is "flip flops are for pools, not for schools". One day our principal came in and we were both here, she asked for a band aid and I asked why, she said she wants it from my wife. I look down and her toe is bleeding in... flip flops.

When I work at the camp in the summer, I cringe everyday while I see the kids running around the dirt roads and tramping through the woods in flip flops. They come to the health center with a sore ankle and I tell them that the first thing they need to do is go to their cabin and put on gym shoes- not crocs, not some other pair of sandals- and then they can come back an ice it for a bit.
