Nurse Daily Log User’s Guide
This user’s guide is designed for users of the Nurse monthly log who want to track numbers and notes
on a daily basis. We have created two tools to help you log your daily activities (an Excel Daily Log
workbook and a Weekly Calendar). Our hope is that these tools provide you a place where you are able
to track daily activities and notes that you might refer to when you are completing your monthly Nurse

You may use the Excel Daily Log and Weekly Calendar on the computer OR you can easily print out the
tools and use paper versions to record your daily activities.
If you choose to write student names in the tools, please be aware of confidentiality issues. If you use
electronic versions of the Excel Daily Log or Weekly Calendar, please password protect the documents.
Additionally, if you are using a shared computer, please make sure that the documents are closed before
you step away from the computer. If you write in student names on hard-copy versions of the tools,
please take precaution to ensure that your documents are secure when they are not in your hands.
There are two daily log tools available for your use:
1. Excel Daily Log workbook
2. Weekly Calendar template
Instructions for the Excel Daily Log:
Each month, you will need to save a new daily log workbook for each school.
There are tabs along the bottom of the Excel Daily Log workbook that allow you to move
between the different sections of the log (these sections correspond to sections in the monthly
log). You can switch back and forth between tabs as much as you like while you have the file
open. Note: If you are printing the Excel Daily Log, please go to each tab and print out each
page. You should print out one copy of the entire workbook for each school site.
