Revolution: The Journal for RNs & Patient Advocacy;May/Jun2004, Vol. 5 Issue 3, p24
The article focuses on the role public school nurses in preserving the health of school children in the United States. With just over 86.000 public schools in the United States, the nation's school nurses are charged with caring for nearly 48 million students every school day. School nurses today administer medication and monitor medication response, respiratory status, seizure patterns and blood glucose levels. School nurses end up acting as primary care provider for children without health insurance--diagnosing serious medical conditions and then hustling to find affordable, or free, resources that can help.
