Hi, just wonderering where you work as a school nurse. I had to chuckle about your comment of working with 800 students... I left a job I'd had for 12 years because the district had grown from 9 to 14 schools, and still refused to increase the nursing staff from 2 school nurses. THAT was an insane position, covering 7 schools and 7000 students, and caused my FMS to be horrible at that time. In March of 2000 I accepted my present job. Changing jobs was stressful, but was one of the best decisions I've made in a long time. And my old district STILL has only 2 nurses. I have one high school, in fact switched to a brand new school this year and love it. ONLY 1500 kids, as we only have 9th and 10th graders. We will eventually have about 3200 students there. I do have days when I wonder how long I can keep working full time, but most of the time I do ok. Helps not to have kids at home anymore, and a wonderful and supportive spouse. We do have to bend our lives around this DD, don't we? It's a shame, but we do. Just have to make the best of it! Peace, Beth.
