Yay! I have been busy with work and getting adjusted but I haven’t forgotten about my tumblr.
Being a school nurse is very much enjoyable. I am at a middle school that has around 840 kids- majority hispanic and black (not quite sure if it would be defined as inner city?)
I am enjoying the hours, the interaction with staff, alone time in my office, and making my own decisions (back to class, rest, go home). The kids are very independent so my diabetic student checks her own blood sugar, some kids carry their own asthma inhalers, etc.
I have spent this past week helping with enrollment and charting the new student’s immunizations, as well as sending kids back to class, lol.
I think I am now adjusted to working days. I would like to find a PRN position for Saturdays/ a few times a month/summers. I don’t miss working night shift much or the hospital.
I’m hoping to start graduate school in Spring 2015- pursuing my master’s in counseling. I also now have a regular set schedule so guess what I’ve been doing!? WORKING OUT!! I’ve missed it. Trying to lose a few lbs.
I am now getting ready for a surprise date now. I hope everyone is doing great!! and I love my apartment! Its bigger than the one I had and I have an actual study room with my desk. CABLE & INTERNET GET INSTALLED ON TUESDAY!!!!
