Hi Just Jai,
Thanks for the reply. My co-worker is a Master's prepared RN. She has been in the same school for 25 yrs and it seems that they have had an issue with retaining a second nurse in this school. I wonder why??! I am very by the book, and on my first day I noticed there was no policy/procedure manual to follow. When I asked her about it, she was like "oh we never really had one". I asked her to see the standing orders from the school district's physician and it took her 3 days to find it and when I reviewed it, the last time it was updated and signed was 2009. I feel like I am in the twilight zone. This is not how I operate at all. Not to mention, the layout of this clinic is so backwards. Nothing flows, supplies are here and there and everywhere. I am running around looking for things. I do not understand how this clinic was set up like this and obviously it has not changed in 25+ years.
At this point, it is not worth my sanity to keep bringing up all the disorganization as nothing will change. The other day she gave a child his seizure medications with an expired MD order. She said" Its ok, I don't expect you to do this, I just know the child and they will eventually get me the paperwork'. This is not how I practice, so its creating such a conflict with me. I have decided I will be handing in my resignation this week. It is for the best, I do not feel comfortable staying at this school and the dread that I feel each night is not normal.
