A REAL nurse? 

I have a friend who is a school nurse at one of the high schools here.  Her school has 2000+ kids, but she also has to travel to 2 different elementary schools regularly (600+ students each) because their district won't keep a real nurse on staff.

Does your child's school employee an RN?

2 full time nurses in the school as well as a health aide (I think paramedic trained) to help out. We have several kids with health issues (school goes to 3rd grade) 5 kids are diabetic needing insulin shots/juice/management and a bazillion nut allergies...

That's great!

My daughter's school (high school) doesn't have a full time nurse.  There is a part time one, who works only like 2 days a week there, and there are para-professionals who help out in the nurses office as needed. 

I'm not sure about my son's school though.

 yeah, there was a whole hullaballo about hiring an additional nurse when Sam was in K. (2nd grade now)... and the budget.... then the whole Newtown tragedy (30 minutes from here) and our budget had another big  hit to get our security amped up in forst grade and a bunch of people wanted to scale back the health office... but they just re-arranged some duties.. now health office takes care of all attendance.. :) and the office (along with 2 secirity guards take care of building security and building passes./ visitation
