yes

She only administers prescription medicine or over the counter medicine with a doctor's note. The parents must deliver the medicine and fill out a form on how it is to be administered.

The nurse is only at our school one day a week.  She does not administer any meds.  The secretary does it.

Yes an RN. And if you send in meds like ibu or benedryl and fill out a form she will give as needed. And if they have an rx she will give as prescribed.

Yes there are 3 nurses. It's a large school that is grades 3-6 and 7-8 (2 separate schools connected by a act walk.)

 Yes, there is, and she is awesome! Dd sees her every day to get Lactaid before lunch, and I've given her some throat lozenges to keep on hand for ds2 to go get as needed (sore throats from sinus drainage).

If you have signed the permission slip, she will give your child Tylenol, Advil, or antacids as needed, and call to double-check that it's still ok. She also checks blood-sugar levels for any diabetic kids and administers asthma meds, and any others needed.

Yes and yes. I thought all schools needed to have a nurse. What happens if a child gets hurt or feels sick? Where do they go?

Our school has a mini office called patriots it is separate from the school just above it actually the elementary and middle school uses it. They can only clean wounds, inspect if a child has a serious issues , call 911 or send them to the local clinic for medications.
