Hopefully Helpful School Nurse Tip: Writing is an excellent way to share our personal school nurse stories and to help spread awareness about school nurse as a profession. These are two of my I AM poems about being a school nurse. Read mine, then submit yours today!

Yes, I Am The School Nurse

Writing these poems gives me and other school nurses the chance to document who we are professionally and a particular time in our school nursing career. Over the years the poems will change depending on our situations, experiences, and current issues.

The original 'I Am The School Nurse' poem was posted on September 28, 2011
It refers to who I was as a school nurse at that particular time in my career. I then wrote another poem (2013) which represented more closely that time in my professional life and those different experiences I was dealing with. I wish I had written something similar back in 1996 when I first started school nursing- how interesting would that be to read today!?
