Hopefully Helpful School Nurse Tip:  You might think waiting to organize your office when you have more time is best practice. However, I'm here to tell you that taking time now to organized your office will actually save you time in the long run!  Ready to get started?

This interactive toolkit from NASN might be a super helpful resource for you.

Organize Your School Nurse Office

My preference is to organize the nurse's office into specific stations. I also allow myself to be flexible enough to make changes as needed depending on the needs of my students each school year.
Think about the space you have and try to make the most of it.  Are you interested in trying health stations in your space.  Some potential stations include:

  • a treatment area
  • a diabetes area
  • a medication area
  • a desk/paperwork area
Organizing like items within designated nurse office areas will help define the spaces for you, your students and staff too.
See how easy it is to get going with the possibilities?
