Hello guys, so I have been asked to be a special education nurse instead of what I interviewed for which is the regular school nurse. What do you all think about it? How different is it? Thanks y’all, love y’all and I appreciate every comment. Thank you

I was always told you are hired by the district not any one specific school or position. For me it would be a tough transition it takes lots if patience and a demeanor fitting for the population. My wheelhouse is the middle school kiddos but I have been with the littles for 4 years now...love it but so over all the bathroom accidents and lice...and they never get my sense of humor not to say anything of the staff politics. What I’m trying to say, everyplace has there own stuff, pros and cons. The grass is not always greener but it is grass.

Our SPED department is part of our school as a whole, so I am nurse for both.   I imagine as a nurse for just SPED you will be handling more feeding tubes, caths, trachs, meds, ect. and less general tummy aches and sore throats.
