i am the school nurse

Yes, I Am The School Nurse

I originally posted an 'I am the school nurse' poem on September 28, 2011
That original I Am poem really talks about who I was
as a school nurse at that particular time in my career.
The nice thing about writing these poems is that they can change
depending on the situations, experiences, and current issues you are dealing with.

So, although I enjoy reading that original poem;
I wanted to write another one that more closely represents
what is going on now with me and my school nursing experience. 
I wish I had written something similar back in 1996 when I first started school nursing-
how interesting would that be to read today!?
Anyway... in 2011 I also didn't make 'printables', so my poem
is just written as a typical blog post.
Which is fine, but I really like inserting the printable versions now!

2013 I Am The School Nurse Poem

2011 I Am The School Nurse Poem

How have you changed over the years?
Is there a particular situation or student
that really stands out in your mind?
I would love to hear from you!


  1. I have never been really touched by a child who had no guidence or anyone who really parented him until Kid #3 had the same boyfriend for 3 years. I am sure you know the one :) I love that boy like his is my own even though he is not Kid # 3 boyfriend anymore. I truely hope that he just graduates high school. I really believe he got this far because we loved him and tried to guide him in the right way because he has never got that at home. At first I was just shocked by his lack of parenting from his own parents. Now it just pisses me off! If he is lucky enough to graduate he will be the first one in his family and probably the only one. It makes me so sad for him. I could go on and on about that forever!

    1. Yes if course I know who:) and because you've reminded me I am going to check on him this week!

    2. Good I am glad to hear that. One year, Sophmore or Junior year, his parents would not buy him any school supplies. He had a job so they thought it was up to him to buy his own. I bought them for him. At registration this year, they would not go and register him. He went and did it himself. I have many many other stories I could tell. Lots and lots of things that he needed help with and they were not there for him. It makes me feel better to know there are other people looking out for him :)

    3. Sadly there are others in his same position :( I am going to introduce him to the Moms Who Care too! I know your family was very kind to him!

  2. I love the differences in the 2 poems. I am so glad I found your blog!
