Hi all. Today was my first day on my own as an elementary school nurse. This is also my first RN position other than a 1:1 job I had. I previously worked at a LTC for children as an LPN, pediatric home health LPN, and a 1:1 LPN in a school. I am in an elementary school with roughly 250 kids. Today and the last few days of last week, I saw over 50 kids a day (including daily meds). It's overwhelming.Today, my first day being on my own I felt like I didn't even have 2 seconds to think! I also had a child come in after nailing his head off of a table with a giant swelling hematoma on his forehead. Called mom who said she had no way to get him. Called dad and he luckily came. We have a very high special needs population, and a very high rate of poverty in our school.I left today feeling a little defeated, and am now lying wide awake wondering if I did the right things with the head incident kiddo. I'm hoping others felt this way when they first started!
