Hello fellow school nurses! Remember me? 🙂 Well I am back after a year away from the school and just doing per diem agency work in the hospital. Agency work has not been as regular as I had hoped and rather than accepting a night shift position and returning to mandatory weekends and holidays... today I interviewed for and accepted a new school nurse position in Early Childhood in my former school district! I start in 2 weeks. I will work 32.5 hours a week, help get the district in compliance with immunizations, write health care plans for the early childhood kiddos, provide emergency care and first aid when I am in the building, do exit interviews with parents and (potentially hearing and vision screening) for Early Childhood screenings and, eventually, develop some health education opportunities for the preschool classes (hand washing, healthy eating, etc) which I have never done before but sounds fun. I am actually really excited for this role! When I worked as a school nurse before I covered everything from Gen Ed to SPED and Birth to 2 to post high school transition. It was nuts! I like the fact that I will have such a narrow age group that I work with and I LOVE preschool age! Can't wait to connect with you all again!
