Some of my adult (teacher) coworkers actually call me "Nurse" - without any part of my name attached - which is extra weird. 

Just respond with "why thank you teacher".  It is rude, they just don't remember your name. I have the nickname RN, as our principal has the same first name as me and I am OK with it, I don't want the headaches he has.

I ask the teachers to call me "Nurse (first name)" when telling their student's who I am.  It makes me crazy to be called "Nurse (last name)" or "Ms (last name)" - it's an old scar from a previous crazy boss.

My favourite from my last school was when the kinders would call me "Miss Nurse".  It would make my day and warm my heart. :)

I've also said I was going to change my name to "Awbut", as in "Aw, but Miss" because I heard that a lot at a previous school.

Whenever I hear a "nurse (last name)" I just think of Nurse Ratched. 

 

I try to go by nurse (first name) but I also have a group of kindergarten girls who insist on calling me Miss Nurse (first name).

^ That's too cute!

I'm Nurse firstname. A few staff suggested Nurse P because of my last name, but a very wise teacher said being called P (pee) was horrible! I got to pick, and it makes sense with elementary. Our PK teachers all do Miss/Ms first name, some staff do as well.

"Lord of the Health Office and the Boss of You"

or just "Nurse (first name)"- either is fine.

I'm usually called Nurse FirstName; sometimes just Nurse. The teachers almost always say "go see the nurse" and the office staff will say "the nurse is her office". So they aren't taught to call me by any name, besides nurse. When I'm in a mood I will tell a child to tell "the Secretary" or "the Teacher" whatever I have to relay to them. It's all good by me as long as the student is respectful. I DO NOT respond to stares, grunts, or demands. Nor do I respond to a student tossing a written clinic pass on my desk with the teacher's statement of why the child is there. I can sit in silence just as long as they can. Eventually the kid will tell me why they are there. I've been asked "can't you read", I respond "can't you talk". Since my students are older, I have told them to return to class until they can properly address me and/or voice their complaints.  That usually works and deters repeat offenders. 😂
