First day of school with the kids today! Third day back to school with staff. I'm in a PK-6th grade elementary school, and I have a ton of work to do! Our schools are very well stocked and each school in our district has a nurse. I'm certainly not in the boat of people who have to build their health offices from the ground up, but this is my first year school nursing full time and the first few days have been nuts. I try to complete one task and get pulled away by something else that opens up the door for 5 more tasks. I'm an extremely organized and detail oriented person, but I'm trying to get my priorities straight and it's taking a long time to get things done. I've been the last one leaving the building these past few days! I know this is normal so I'm trying not to absolutely freak out but I need someone to tell me I'll get to leave at 3:00 instead of 5:30 or 6 eventually! Does it get easier year to year too? I love taking care of the kids, but the extra paperwork and other associated items are killing me. Not to mention I got stung by a bee today when I was called out onto the playgroup because two students smacked heads at recess and one was bleeding from a gash on his forehead. Go figure. Good thing I don't have a LTA to bees. I didn't even have time to put an ice pack on my arm today let alone each lunch.
