Do you have them there? Is there one in every school or just to travel around the system?

Fairfax Co. Elementary School...I think ours is in the building one day a month. She goes between many schools. The clinic is usually staffed with an aide.

We had a full-time one until this year, and she is always busy. Now, she has to go to another school for one or two days a week, and we miss her on those days. I don't see how we can have any schools without a full-time nurse.

I teach in Prince William County and we have one every day all day. I think in PWC it depends on the enrollment in the school weather you have one all day or every day. My son has one every other day I believe and he also attends at school in PWC.

Wow-I can't believe that, though I suspected when looking at school websites. Currently I am a RN in a middle school in upstate NY. our census is 475 and I am there full time. I see on average 65-70 kids a day not including my medications. I get it all...from stomachaches to 911 related injuries.
On top of my daily case load, I'm responsible for all immunizations (lots of immigrants and refugees in NY that make that a blast) screening, physicals, reports, etc. My days are crazy..I thought I'd look into subbing down there to get my foot in the door, but sounds like there isn't much to offer.
Maybe the parents and teachers need to shout out to the school board.

Our Catholic school has a full-time nurse, not sure if that's the case with all the Catholic schools but I have the impression that it is. So you might want to check with private schools.

My school has about 850 students k-6 and my wife's school has about 600 k-6. The nurse visits once a month. Everything else is handled by an aide. During the past winter at my school, the aide quit to go to another job and the secretaries handled clinic issues. We were asked to not send anyone to the clinic unless it was absolutely necessary.

DC uses a sub-contractor and pays 30+ bucks per hour for RN.
