Say a little prayer for me...

Today I will start my journey as a school nurse. I have been blessed to have 2 great health assistants that will teach me the ropes and help me from failing horribly!

To say I am nervous is an understatement. Every new job brings a new set of insecurities. I generally know what to do when kids come in sick, but not being in a hospital setting and having access to oxygen, doctors, emergency meds (except for epinephrine ), and many other things scare(s) the CRAP out of me.

Can I tell you how awesome it is to not only have my own desk, but also my own parking spot! Whoo!

But those kids will be ok. I feel that even with the brief interaction with the staff I have had, they will be incredibly supportive!

So I am just asking those who still read my blog to say a little prayer for me today. I don't want to cry on my first day (which is what I tend to do when I get overwhelmed...ok well that's the first reaction I have to anything). I should say the most important thing would be for the kids to be and stay as healthy as possible!

Thank you all and I will report back with all my first day excitement!

I'm praying for you. Just remember Olive Oil for those licey-heads. If you don't remember what I am talking about, call me.
