    I would think the law trumps policy.

    Teacher appreciation week...

    I put the NASN poster on my door. Won't do any good but I just had to. I might put my cap on the skeleton with thoughts of a meme like school nurses waiting for recognition.

    Go to the nurse.

    I don't know how this big glob of home made slime got stuck in my hair.

    Stomachaches

    This! I finally got fed up with kids coming FROM lunch that I had a chat with the aides and found out they were afraid someone MIGHT vomit. Kidsninhale their food and yes get stomachaches. I told them unless someone actually vomits, to stop sending me 20 kids per lunch period. Just stop. 49 days to go.

    what's your favorite...

    The schedule, for sure. Unlike any other job or profession, there is a start and end to each year with a boat load of time to reset in between. Everyone else drones on endlessly with the requisite 2 week vacation per year if your lucky, with no end in site. I know this from experience lol.

    AAAAAGGHHH!

    It mated with a flea. Now we have flice. It can jump 10' in any direction and stick to whatever it lands on with its hooked feet. I sense a movie coming.

    Diabetic Coverage at all activities

    And then are you expected to be "the nurse" for everyone at this school sponsored event? Where is the line drawn if the district is paying you as a school nurse attending the event? Just wondering...

    Med Schedule

    What everyone else said...also, adding to privacy, students are nosey and don't need to know that Susie or Mike needs a med. Bullying is a big problem. No reason to give them a reason.

    Did you replace a school nurse?

    Yes, prior nurse was there for 15 years and the one before that from the 1950's. Last nurse had ancient pamphlets and triplicate information. I think my vision screener is an original lol. First year was tough, no one ever did electronic charting before or was used to being told no. Found records dating back decades that should've been archived. All good now.

    Who is your boss?

    Technically I report to the superintendent but in reality to my principal who is a most excellent boss lady.

    Stocking OTC meds at elementary school level

    I don't stock OTC's (except neo, aquaphor etc) and am slowly putting an end to cough drops. I do have standing orders but the parents are required to fill out an OTC form and bring the meds in if they want Tylenol, visine, etc. I have little kiddos so the thought process is I don't want to be the first time kiddo has brand X pain/fever med to find out they are allergic.

    Dexcom

    I have multiple dex coms and use a school provided iPad. Put my foot down about that. Was a non-issue when I told admin that if I had to use my personal phone then so did the kiddos teachers.
