School nurse....the best job ever

A hundred years ago when I graduated from nursing school, I never pictured myself as ever going into school nursing... I had always done adult nursing and loved it. But, after having kids and wanting to be off when they were it seemed a perfect fit in terms of schedule.
God placed a job I didn't really know I wanted right in my lap at just the right time!
I have been doing this for years now and now can't imagine ever doing anything else.

When we had to move to Lubbock I was sick about leaving my school but again, God put me in a great school a lot like the one I had been in before.  My office even looks the same!
Every year since I've been there, the staff has worn scrubs on Nurse's day in honor of me...
I don't have any scrubs anymore but I am sporting a lovely nurse's hat a student made for me...

The best part about Nurse's day every year is the cards I get from the kids

This one is pretty self explanatory - I safe lifes...
and as you can see from this one where it spells out "nurse Cara rocks" that I am really healthy and the king of nurses....

This is a kid I see all the time but, he simply thinks the Texas Rangers rock...



                                        and as you can see it's time to party for nurse's week

This might be my favorite this year...I was a little relieved that he doesn't love me in a bad way, no crushes here!!!


This is a little hard to read but he said "if it wasn't for you I would be sick"... his teacher pointed out the erased area because he first said he would be "screwed" without me...

I love my job!
