Nurse Notes (printable)

Happy Monday everyone! And it is happy, isn't it? It's lovely to be at home in the summertime and, thanks to Ms. Tara, we have an awesome linky party to join each Monday!

So, I'm still working away at some signs to amp up my old color scheme for this new school year, as well as to get things a little more organized.

Today I focused on a little management piece I've used in the past, which has really helped me save time: premade notes to the nurse, to fill out quickly when one of my students isn't feeling well.

They aren't anything major...they just have a space for the student's name, class name, and a blank space for the reason why the student is being sent:
(I'm sometimes long-winded in my notes, so I tried to make that space pretty large!)

I used to keep these notes in a plastic sleeve I made, but it's kind of worn out at this point. So I decided to keep them (along with a pen because I can NEVER seem to find one when I need it!) in one of my bright baskets. (I must confess, I had a terrible urge to buy a new little basket, specifically for this purpose--but I am resisting!!) I have sworn to not buy any more plastic storage. We'll see if I can stick with this resolution! I'm guessing no...haha!

Anyhow, if you would like to use any part of this file, please click on the preview below...
Thanks for stopping by!! :)

  1. Cuteness!! I love it and I know our school nurse would appreciate these. Your ideas always make me happy :) :)

    Lol, I thought of you the other day bc I went into the Dollar Store (1st mistake), went back to the plastic bins (2nd mistake) and say navy blue bins (love!), then proceeded to buy all 11 ;)

    Thankfully, they have found a use in my room (sort of), but they were not even close to a necessary purchase!! Bin-a-holics Anonymous may be in our future ;)

    Happy Monday :)

  4. These are adorable!
    And my goal is to buy more fun baskets because I have too many plain-old-plastic-see-through tubs. BORING!

  12. I love this idea! We don't have a nurse but our secretary kinda does that too and we are supposed to write her notes about what the problem is. I usually forget so this will keep me in her good graces. Thanks Kristen!

  19. Very cute! I need to do something like this. We used to have a pass system at my old school, but the new school...not so much.

  20. Super cute! Love the label for the basket and even though we too have ugly district provided slips (though we think our Health Clerk might appreciate these cuties, for sure), we love the idea of having them at our fingertips...with a pen! We too have a basket buying problem, but are not do not have as strong of will power as you. Stay strong...:)

  23. Cute ideas! I also wish I could use it, but we must use district duplicate version although it does make it easy to check off their various ailments. We have to fill out student name, number, teacher name, date, time left and then we have a selection of common ailments we can check off or select other and we can write note. The bottom is reserved for school nurse to write her notes. I also have a little plastic container for bandaids, gloves, hand sanitizer, pen and clinic passes. This is well used in my classroom as I leave it for a sub and I take it with me at recess or field trips. Thanks for sharing!

  27. Love your site! :) Love this idea...I made my own notes on Vista Print and the hardest part was remembering to use them, lol. It was so nice to just write.."Temperature" rather than call down, interrupt the secretary/nurse, talk to her and then get back to my patiently waiting class ;)...these were great most of the time and perfect for the info needed.
