October 2015

Goodbye October....

Here's a few things I learned this October...

  1. No matter how many years experience I have as a school nurse there are days (sometimes weeks) when I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing!
  2. October 15th can't have enough reminders!
  3. I like to need to drink flavored coffee every day!
  4. Most students will talk- just ask them questions!
  5. My new YETI cup really does keep my water ice cold all day long!

Saying goodbye to September

Saying goodbye to September...

If you're a school nurse you know how busy the beginning part of the school year can be!

Who am I kidding?  It seems like every part of the school year is busy, 
but for sure the beginning part of the year!

Here are a few things about myself as a school nurse ...
  1. I like using pretty colored pens in my calendar!  It just makes things look better.  If I can make my busy days look better then the days might seem more manageable!
  2. I like to re-purpose empty supply boxes.  See the picture in the upper right corner?  It was the house for non-adherent pads, but it now is a home for some passes I use on a weekly basis! And the vintage Band-Aid container (in the bottom right corner)- it just looks pretty! 
  3. I realized I would rather have one large (8 inch) To-Do stack in one area of my desk v. multiple  tiny stacks covering my entire desk!
  4. Work life is a little easier if you can stay organized!  I make lists of things to do, write notes in my calendar, I actually have a binder titled "book of lists" which is used as a reference for students who have received special passes throughout the year, and I try to compartmentalize areas in my office for certain, specific like tasks.
Feel free to share something about your office and routine! ...
