    It’s a Lice Celebration

    That's awesome, congratulations!! We transitioned several years ago, and while I still have some arguments, for the most part the teachers have given up fighting me In the beginning, I would just simple state our policy, spout out a few facts if I needed to, and didn't back down. "Our policy says..." became a pretty standard response and eventually they just stopped asking!

    Awards assembly

    We have "Bucket Fillers" here and students get treasure cards for actions recognized by teachers and staff here in our building- Going the extra mile for each other, holding doors, volunteering to help a student in need, etc... If they are awarded a treasure card, they are recognized during morning announcements and then can pick a small something from the counselor's treasure box (pencils, fun shaped erasers, etc...)That's how I recognize something like you mentioned. I think that, plus the praise you have already given is plenty enough. I may be a bit finicky when it comes to stuff like this but I'm not one to jump at passing out a trophy or certificate every time a student does something good.

    Take Away Envelope/Containers

    We don't allow our students to transport meds to or from school. A parent must drop it off and pick it up. Too much liability and worry about who may get their hands on it. Students that keep epi and inhalers in their possession have an entirely different set of paperwork filled out, in order to be able to do that and even then I worry.

    Take Away Envelope/Containers

    I wish we could but we don't have that option here locally. The closest location is about 35 minutes away.

    Take Away Envelope/Containers

    I came across this today while browsing my supply catalog and getting things ordered for next year. Any of you familiar with this? I would love to be able to utilize this, as we do not have facilities in place for me to dispose of medications that are not picked up by parents at the end of the year. I'm in Ohio, and I'm trying to research now whether this is something I can use. I'm hoping you guys will have some experience with them too https://c.ymcdn.com/sites/www.productstewardship.us/resource/collection/3009FD86-6AE4-488D-BFC0-1A4CB91B53AE/NCPA_Dispose_My_Meds_Program__and__Take_Away_Environmental_Return_System_Program.pdf

    Screenings for Cyber Students

    We have online students; however, I do not do screenings on them, nor do I keep immunization records or health folders for them. They are not on premises which means they are not my responsibility.

    Caption This Cartoon Nurses Week Contest

    They've made him a "No Code" multiple times but it's like no matter what happens, he just keeps coming back to life.

    No snacks in this clinic! If I have a student that I know or have a strong suspicion needs something to eat because they don't have anything at home, I will walk with them to the cafeteria to grab something from our wonderful cooks.

    not getting the info I need

    I should have added: I know you mentioned that you like this person, and that is perfectly fine, but in this case, liking them, or even not, has nothing to do with what is going on. Liking them should be your catalyst for approaching them to help them see what is happening could lead to some pretty serious mistakes and consequences.

    not getting the info I need

    You are not overreacting and here is why... "these things that I'm responsible for were not communicated to me, I'm missing vital information, communication from me to teachers/necessary staff has not taken place, and policies have not been adhered to. I am worried about what else is being neglected over there-I also reported 2 additional issues 2 weeks ago. If something happens, it's my license." Have you addressed these issues with the person too?

    School Title

    I'm Mrs. Supernrse; however, I don't find the Mrs. part necessary. I am totally fine with them calling me by first name. That's what I would go by if I was their nurse in the hospital and I don't find it disrespectful at all if they call me by my name. I've answered to it for 43 years- nothing wrong with the kiddos using it too

    Sub Notes

    I am the only nurse in my district and I don't have a sub. Any pertinent info that I would share with a sub is already well known by the office staff.

    Seriously not my week... flu!

    We are dealing with Flu A and B right now. My poor kiddos are being hit, HARD with it.

    C'Mon Now!

    Food stuck behind a kid's front tooth and I was called to the frontlines. Food. Behind. A. Tooth. Not like there was a hole in the tooth or infection surrounding the tooth, just the kind of stuck that happens when you bite into fresh bread kind of stuck... I wish you could see my face right now.
