School Nurse Shortage: A National Crisis

A segment of CBS This Morning that aired on April 11, 2019, provided information on what some are calling a growing national crisis: the shortage of school nurses. As we are well aware, our roles as school nurses are more critical than ever with a growing number of children suffering chronic illnesses along with the occurrence of medical emergencies happening at any given moment.

Let us hope that the attention given to this story will encourage legislators to mandate a school nurse for every building in New York State.
