Throwing myself a pity party today:cry:....nurse supervisor called first thing this morning and ruined my day. The same person that was resistant to me starting a project is now upset I didn't do it after not answering any of my emails for weeks. I do not have the support I was expecting for this project, so I canned it. I feel like I have no one in my corner.....No support from admin, other health staff, etc. To the teachers and students, I am "nurse." I am left out of all the fun stuff they do for the staff, like gift exchanges for Christmas last year( I was at a nurse meeting when they discussed it, apparently.) All kinds of teacher appreciation, boss day, secretary day, but no nurse day....They had my birthday party last year when I wasn't even there. (They combine the ones for the month). There is no nurse at the high school this year, so I split my day between the two schools. I am also in charge of supervising the other 3 schools, so 5 total! About 3,000 kids they want health plans for, vision and hearing, etc. Twice they have called me from another school while at a 504 meeting to come change diapers at my school because "no one" else can help! I don't know how any of their children survived, since apparently it takes a college degree to change a diaper. I've been really stressed because the pay is WAY worse than I thought. This is the easiest job I've ever had, with a great schedule. But I've just about had it. This school went through three nurses in the year before I started-now I know why! I REALLY miss my coworkers at my old job, cause even when it stunk, someone acted like they understood. I wish I could find another job with this kind of schedule. I loved night shift, but someone has to be home with the kids at night, and my husband works an alternating schedule. Sorry for the rant, but I spent the last half-hour crying and thinking about going home "sick". Of course, who would change the diapers then?!
