I'm Japanese, born and grew up in Japan, went to the US at age 14 and then had to go back to Japan 3 years ago because my visa ran out and could not find a job/visa sponsor. Luckily found a job at an international school as a school nurse.
I'm currently working as a school nurse at this international school (about 300 students K-12) in Japan for 2 years.
Recently, I came to a point where I don't know what I'm doing or what I should be doing as a nurse.
I feel frustrated deep inside and I can't seem to get rid of it
I feel left behind and I also feel extremely lonely being the only school nurse in school.
I don't have anybody to share or talk to about nursing and I often feel choked up in my office.
I don't have a clue as to what I should do to keep up with my nursing and keep my confidence as a RN.
My husband is an American but we have no plan on going back to the States right now.
It is difficult for me to keep myself up with license renewal, CE and CPR/AED renewal.
I feel like I can do more for this school but I don't know where to start.
My Japanese is not good enough to get involved in the nursing community over here.
There's not many people out there with similar cases like mine.
But I feel like I'm on the edge and needed to share.
