School Nurse RN, Palatine, IL - January 31, 2016
I have been a school nurse in three different local school districts and have been a nurse for 30 years. I can say hands down Palatine Dist 15 was the absolute worst job I ever had. The work load is dangerous and unrealistic. Nurses are evaluated by administrators who have no idea what a nurse actually does. They promise parents anything they want to hear whether it's possible or safe to preform in the school setting. Administration has no regard for nursing practice or that we all have licenses that could be lost if we don't follow our basic guidelines. The only nurses that stay there are ones who've never worked in another district and don't realize how bad they have it.
