TEXAS SIZED SCHOOL NURSE OFFICE REVEAL

Nurse Holly was kind enough to share her office inspiration pictures with the DOASN readers and I am so happy she did!  She is a district school nurse and a school nurse at the high school level. Her office screams WELCOME with it's organization, functional  stations, medical decor & more! I'm certain her students and staff feel safe and have a sense of calm when they enter through these school nurse office doors.

ENTRY

It's always nice to make a great first impression and Nurse Holly's office offers two doors for just that!  There are two entrance doors (one for students and one mainly for staff) and also a door to a private bathroom! These doors provide more spaces to decorate and welcome students and staff into her office.

COT AREA

The placement of the cot to the work station offers enough space for distance, but it also close enough to keep an eye an the student who might be resting or sitting on the cot while the nurse is at the desk area. How many of you are jealous of her amazing Welch Allyn assessment tools?!

DESK & TREATMENT AREA
I heard a rumor once that some school nurses don't have running water & sometimes not even a bathroom or two in their offices and I can't imagine! Thankfully, Nurse Holly is not one of those nurses; she has a sink with running water available in her office and even a private bathroom.  Look closely- she has two computers! Do you too? I do and I will never, ever be able to return to just one monitor!

MONEY SAVING IDEAS FROM NURSE HOLLY!

One of the most frustrating aspects about decorating and organizing  school nurse offices is the budget- or lack there of :(  Personally, I've purchased actual decoration items in my office with my own personal money. Therefore, I am always looking for ways to repurpose items I already have. 

Nurse Holly has found a few ways to save on the decor items found throughout her office too-
"My “cheap” way of decorating is to either create my own on Canva and have them printed OR purchase printable graphics on Etsy then have them printed at Walgreens as a “board print”- you can purchase in various sizes. They look nicer than a regular posted but cheap enough that you can change them frequently if you wanted!" -Nurse Holly

When I am able to purchase something with funds then I am looking for the best price and most resourceful option for the funds I am allowed to spend. For me- AMAZON has been the way 99.7% of the time. My school district has a business account which offers free, Prime shipping and the prices are usually the least expensive I can find!  Visit The School Nurse Amazon storefront here!
