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 ...
- 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!
- 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!
- 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!
- 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.
