My 10-year old daughter was sent home by the school nurse last Friday afternoon because she was feverish and congested. When I got to the clinic, I felt relived to find out that school nurse Cindy gave my daughter a cold compress to lower the fever. I've always been very impressed with the quality of care that the school nurses provide at my daughter's Charter School.
From the moment the bell rings in the morning, to the zip of the last backpack at the end of the day, school nurses are there to handle every bump, fever, sore throat, and stomach ache. When we can’t be around during the school day, they are the caregivers that look after our children.
