I am 25 years old and did not get hired in a hospital right away (my passion was OB) so I took the only place that called me back, which was my elementary school. Been here ever since bc no hospital will hire a nurse that's been a school nurse for 2 years and no clinical experience (trust me I've tried).
But anyway, my day consists of getting here at 7am, wiping down the clinic, my desk and phone and keyboard, just really sanitizing everything. I read and reply to emails (bc I get 100+ day) and call parents back if any left voicemails. I make sure I have enough ice packs for the day (these go quick). Once 8am hits, I have a line of kids already at the door. I basically do triage with the students. Mostly minor first aid, but I've had to call EMS already 3 times since I started in 2012 (for students and parents on campus). I hand TONS of medications (mostly PO), but also neb tx, straight caths, ect. There were no diabetics on my campus this year. While giving meds and documenting my vistits and meds given, I am checking shot records, writing referrals to doctors, sitting in 504 meetings/ARDS, giving presentations/demonstrations over EPipens, monitoring the ozone for Ozone Action days, cancelling Recess as needed, presenting the maturation video for 5th graders, sitting in on registration day to check shots, ect.
If I'm lucky I can go to the bathroom and eat lunch lol.
With my school district, when you start, you start at the base pay. Even though you have nursing experience they don't count that here. You salary goes up as your number of years here increase.
Hope this helps!
