  1. Students lying about you

    Have you ever had a student lie about you? I am so frustrated! I don’t feel comfortable putting the ridiculous lies an elementary student has said on here. But what did you do? The mom either believes or makes excuses. My concern is what lie will the...
  2. Part-time School Nursing?

    Before Covid I worked part time, 5 hrs a day. If anyone needed medical attention the secretary would handle it. She is also an Lpn. Once in a while I would get a phone call asking what to do. I didn’t mind because it was rare that it happened.
  3. What does everyone wear?

    I wear scrub pants and school t shirts or hoodies. Fridays we can wear jeans.

  5. Have you ever tried to change a policy?

    Our lice policy is from 1997. We sent home for live lice, check them again when they return. I am also to check all classes they are in ? this can be an entire grade! This policy is so outdated. It’s not a school issue. It’s a home environment i...
  6. School Nurses: When is everyone back?

  9. SECOND nurses office?!

    I run 2 clinics in an elementary school this year. It has been very difficult and stressful at times since I’m the only nurse in my building. My clinic is where I give meds, treatments, see injuries, bloody noses... If a student has any symptoms ...

    Yay! I’m I’m Ohio and was able to get mine today. I feel a sense of relief and hope. I already have an appointment for the 2nd vaccine. The rest of the staff will be getting theirs the first week of February. There were so many to sign up the he...
  11. Autistic students

    I call home and talk to the parent if I have concerns. They know them best. But I do know they can also send them to school not feeling well. Also, the teachers have a habit of exaggerating symptoms to try to get me to send them home ? I stick around...
