Help Pfizer Find America's Greatest School Nurse! #sponsored

This post has been sponsored by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. All thoughts and reviews are my own.

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.

Does your school nurse go above and beyond in educating and comforting their students? Pfizer Pediatrics wants to honor America’s Greatest School Nurse and would love for you to help spread the word to nominate a school nurse that you know goes above and beyond for students every day. A school nurse that you trust with your child’s health while they are away from the comforts of home.

Here's the Information about the America’s Greatest School Nurse contest:
  •  Nominations will be accepted nationwide from anyone who would like to honor their exemplary school nurse.
  • One nurse from each state plus Washington D.C. will win a prize valued at $500 and will be entered to win the grand prize: the title of America’s Greatest School nurse and a trip for a getaway from school sickness.
  • For more information and to read the full contest rules and submit a nomination, visit AmericasGreatestSchoolNurse.com. Nominations will be accepted from January 9th to February 23rd.
  • Voting will be open from April 3rd to April 16th and the winners will be announced in early May.
Even with great school nurses around, kids get sick no matter how much you may try to prevent it. When sick gets real, the pediatric brands of Pfizer Consumer Healthcare are there with three solutions – Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin® and Children’s Dimetapp® – to tackle the ickiest of symptoms.
Ease those aches and pains, while reducing a child’s fever fast with Children’s Advil®, a great solution for kids as young as 2 and up to 11. Children’s Advil® comes in several great-tasting flavors, including: Sugar-free Dye-free Berry, Bubble Gum, Grape, Blue Raspberry, Fruit and Dye-Free White Grape flavors. There’s also Infants’ Advil® White Grape, which provides unsurpassed fever relief (among OTC pain relievers) with a syringe for easy dosing for children 6-23 months.

For your child’s cough, trust Children's Robitussin® Extended-Release 12 Hour Cough Relief to control and relieve symptoms all-day or all- night. Available in grape or orange flavor, for children ages 4 and up. Please note, certain Children's Robitussin® products are only suitable for children ages 6 and up.

Children’s Dimetapp® Multi-Symptom Cold Relief Dye-Free eases your child’s stuffy and runny nose, while quieting a bothersome cough. All in a great-tasting grape flavor that’s dye-free, for children 6 and up.
I personally like this over the counter medicine because it's easy to give to my daughter when she get sick. It relieves her stuffy nose as well as helps with her cough. She was able to sleep through the night. She also told me that the grape flavor tasted way better compared to most cold medicines that she's had before. Now she's better and back to school!

Kids get sick, no matter how much you do to prevent it. If sick just got real™ in your house, always remember 3 solutions to tackle the ickiest of symptoms: Infants’ and Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin®, and Children’s Dimetapp®.

So don't forget to nominate your school nurse for his or her chance to be named America's Greatest School Nurse and win the Ultimate Summer Vacation. Plus, each state Finalist will win $500.

This is really great! I bet there are so many great school nurses! I wish we had nurses here in Canada at our schools. But this is fabulous of them in the US! - jeanine

School nurses are important for lots of things. My boys have used them for sickness and owies

Divya Mathur said...

This is so awesome. Here, in the middle of nowhere, Tennessee, I so appreciate our school nurse. Often times, this is the only care that the kiddos get since there are very few primary physicians out here.

This is an amazing campaign for nurses, especially in a world where we don't stop and say thank you enough! Your child is really lucky to have such a great nurse.

I love this! School nurses do so much.

I don't remember having a school nurse except in Elementary School. In jr high or high school if I needed something my mom had to bring it to me. It's nice to hear that some schools still have nurses because they are a vital need in schools.

Kelly Reci said...

never had a school nurse at school. but this sounds great! every school should have a nurse, graet post!

Jolleen Ruiz said...

Children's medicine is such a life saver! Our school nurse is wonderful. How cool that they are doing this giveaway! They deserve a break too ..

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

Well, Advil was a well known and trusted brand especially for its pain reliever. Good to know that there is also a Children’s Advil that helps reduce a child’s fever faster.

Julie Porter said...

I actually have a few friends who are school nurses, I would love to see one of them win this contest.

I think that it's really pity that we don't have school nurses in the Czech Republic as well because they could help a lot! Appreciate this luxury in the US and everywhere else! :)

Elizabeth O. said...

What a lovely contest. School nurses deserve to be rewarded for the work that they do. I'm sure a lot of nurses will be happy about this!

C. Poly said...

Great idea! I remember growing up how awesome my school nurse was. My kids don't currently go to a public school, so they haven't encountered the 'school nurse' yet, but I look forward to meeting the lady who will handle their bumps, fevers, and upset tummys while they are at school.

Becca Wilson said...

I love that there is this campaign for nurses. Advil has always been a huge help when it comes to keeping fevers down.

JcCee said...

Awesome idea to acknowledge school nurses! They are a great asset to the school. Robitussin and Dimetapp has been staples in my household.

Dana Vento said...

Nurses are always awesome. I personally don't know anyone in the field but I admire what they do and careful they are in supporting us as patients. It's cool of Pfizer to encourage getting them into the limelight!

Katrina Gehman said...

i thought of being a nurse but life had other plans. i think it's one of the hardest jobs there. i have great friends that are nurses and i know how hard they work and how much they care for their patients.

Missy said...

My aunt was a middle school nurse for twenty years and I continue to admire all the hard work they put into the lives of children. This is an amazing campaign :)

My son has the sniffles right now. We always keep something on hand, just in case!

Camesha | Mama Motivator said...

That's great! You always want to feel good about your kids care when you're not there. My kids haven't had much interaction with the school nurse. I'll count that as a good thing, right? lol

P.S. love the hashtag!

Aziel Morte said...

It's important to have a stock of this in our house. My son was not feeling well today

Ayesha Heart said...

Brilliant idea! They deserve this and for sure a lot will be happy. We make sure we have stocks just in case.

Mommy Rockin' In Style said...

We never ran out of Advil in our medicine cabinet. It is trusted by the family.

What an awesome campaign to nominate school nurses. They usually go underappreciated in the school system. I love this initiative!
