    So frustrated.

    My admin is saying that I -have- to find face masks. I’ve found sites selling them for around $25 for 50. They said it’s too expensive. I’m about to cry from the frustration. I told them I cannot find them. They’re on back order and no one knows when they’ll be in stock. “We’re running out and we need to have them.”

    What won't you get done?

    We are closed for the rest of the year. I didn’t teach HIV or growth and development. I had one more class of CPR for seniors (requirement to graduate). I didn’t finish end of year reports. Didn’t send home immunization letters.

    Working from Home During COVID-19 Shut Down

    I’m hoping that’s true. However, I was told I had to submit the items I’m working on. If checking e-mail and attending meetings are all I have to do, great! If not, I’m trying to come up with things I can do.. just in case it’s required.

    Working from Home During COVID-19 Shut Down

    If you’re working from home during the shut down, what are you doing? I don’t have access to e-school (our charting and information program). We have to be “doing our jobs” from home.

    If your school is closed re COVID19, what is your role

    Oh yeah, definitely if there is any risk you have contracted it.. but a mask for a runny nose? These people won't even have access to one. They're sold out everywhere, but I fear this letter is going to make our parents panic. It's allergy season. Everyone has a runny nose. I just don't understand that. We only have 3-4 cases in the state.

    If your school is closed re COVID19, what is your role

    We just closed Also, superintendent sent a letter home stating a mask should be worn before going to a clinic or hospital for fever, diarrhea, loss of appetite, sore throat, runny nose. Is this CDC recommended? Am I missing something??

    Our super is holding an emergency meeting with principals in 15 minutes. I have a feeling we are about to close. Goodbye paycheck!

    A Question About Standing Orders

    My state has almost zero guidelines on school nursing. Blessing and a curse. Some districts have OTC medications and make parents sign a consent at the beginning of the year. We do not do that.

    A "real nurse" or school nurse

    I think some people ask because a lot of places hire non-licensed staff as a "school nurse."

    Stolen supplies

    We had two NBA players test positive yesterday. They had meet and greets with many students... everyone is panicking. Office is definitely locked now!

    ED nurse to School Nurse

    My pay cut was not significant. I worked 40 hours per week as a surgery nurse. I took about a 5k a year pay cut, but I also cut out my $600 a month daycare bill. I'm making the same money for better hours. I work PRN in surgery still. So, I have MORE money Your ER experience will be great. You practice pretty independently.

    Stolen supplies

    I agree. We are trying to figure out who took them... but I'm doubtful. The principal is angry. We've previously left my door open so the secretaries can get what they need, but now the door is locked.
