    Help? Guidance? Suggestions?

    And blocking it seems like she is trying to do! She won't even give us dad's contact info to speak to him about anything. All communication is done through her.

    Help? Guidance? Suggestions?

    We have told her that since before school started when we found out about this kiddo. She just kept telling us they didn't need a 1:1 nurse and that she would get documentation stating that. We have received absolutely no MD documentation related to ...

    Help? Guidance? Suggestions?

    Hello all! I'm looking for some guidance on a situation. I have a new student with a trach in place. Student is self sufficient with almost all care (they are unable to re-cannulate on their own). However, all documentation that we have received...

    Therapeutic communication for anxiety

    I ask them if they want to go outside for a little while. Mental health is not my strong suit by any means, but I'm a huge fan of getting them outside when they reach this point. Especially with the older ones. I've noticed the fresh air, change of s...

    Happy Nurse's week.... I guess

    I walked into a kiddo sitting in my office before announcements had even been made...I was grumpy from dealing with a difficult parent the ENTIRE day before too. Imagine my absolute shock and instant emotional mess when I saw a potted lilly plan...

    I'm tired!

    Ya know, its sooooo easy to get stuck in your own mindset, especially this year! My husband and I tend to think completely opposite of each other so I truly appreciate his point of view on almost everything because he is so good at bringing to light ...

    Tired of being "the bad guy"...

    Yes, and honestly, my admin is extremely supportive and has had no problems discussing things with the teachers. I'm just so tired of them doing their own thing "when no one is around". I move around a lot this year to minimize unnecessary visits so ...

    Tired of being "the bad guy"...

    One of my kinder kiddos called me a "Mask Monster" last week and originally, I laughed. Today, I'm feeling like a "mask monster" because it seems like everyone dreads when I walk in the room. I also feel like the ONLY one on my campus who is actively...

    All of your "typical" school nurse duties ? I maintain all health records, perform all State mandated screenings, provide training to staff for various topics, handle all office visits (when on campus), perform all health related data entry, I travel...

    Yes, it's definitely something that has been on my radar for a while. But with it just being me, myself, and I for my entire district, I just haven't had the time to really sit down and get it all done. ?

    Goodness! I didn't even think to check their BP but will definitely add that in the event something like this occurs again. I don't know about anyone else, but this week has been nothing but office visit after office visit! By the time this one got t...

    Trying to see if you guys would have done things differently... Had an afterschool staff member approach me today stating they felt like they were having an allergic reaction to the dipping sauce they ate with their chicken wrap. They stated the...

    40 days left!!

    55 days! We've been in person since we started back and truly, I think it went the best it could have gone! It's been a year, and parents have been mean, but y'all. My kids have done AMAZING with the mitigation processes we have in place this year. I...
