View Full Version : Nursing at school

So Joys been back at school now for about 2 months....the short of it, everyone at school can't stand my nurse, she says everyone lies about her, she is asian and I think its the culture thing. She does ok here, although doesn't compare to my old nurse. I just don't like that they don't like her so maybe they don't mind if Joy goes to school or not, because like if you get one you get the other...there have been yelling matches at school between her and the staff, I called the agency and let them know and they said they'd start looking for a replacement. Do I tell her or not? Or just let the agency deal? She(the nurse) thinks everything is ok though.

I think it really depends on why they don't like her. Maybe she's nosy and into everyone's business...maybe she doesn't comply with the teachers and therapists...or something that goes against school policy. If the school didn't like her for a serious reason they could ban her from working there, yes?
Find out what the reason is...have a meeting and have the school come clean. Nurses are tough to come by and it sounds as though you don't mind this nurse so much, and mom's intuition is the best.
PS...I've had 2 nurses our school didn't like at all. One was rude to the staff and he wouldn't help with anything academic (not that it was technically his job, but not helpful to my son if no one was avail). They rejoiced when I finally fired him. ...after 6 years.
The second was a 20-something "know"-it-all fresh out of LPN school and would tell the therapists they were "wrong" and argued with the teacher, and was lazy. I fired her pretty early on.

Listen to what the school has to say and talk to more than one person. They are your eyes & ears when you cant be there. I had a nurse who was taking 30 to 40 min breaks leaving Angelo alone so she could go smoke.:eek: (her excuse was that he is very stable) She would also eat any snacks left in the teachers lounge and gave her opinion way to many times. She was a little bossy at the house, But at school she was out of control! The people at school didn't tell me at first, finally someone spoke up. She did this for almost 2 months.
