Default School Nurse Shortage may lead to Major Problems

Across the nation schools are encountering a school nurse shortage that could lead to major problems as students head back to class and are exposed to viruses such as H1N1 influenza and the seasonal flu.
School districts around the country are facing a shortage of school nurses that has resulted in the student-to-nurse ratio rising to 1,151 students per nurse, according to the National Association of School Nurses. These numbers exceed by 401 students the ratio recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is a much lower 750 students to one nurse.

As the school year begins, so does an increase in the spread of viruses, including H1N1 influenza, also called swine flu, and the seasonal flu. With student-to-nurse ratios reaching 3,300 to one, these viruses could remain undetected in students and increase the spread, according to a USA Today analysis of U.S. Census data. The analysis states that the school nurse shortage could "undermine efforts to catch and control swine flu during what could be a deadly flu season."

With no increase in the number of school nurses projected for the year, school districts must identify infected students early but also follow recommendations from the health department and CDC to prevent the spread of infection.

Default

they should probably up the pay from 20.00 per hour to 35., or so.....I would accept the job then......major responsibilities for school nurses....kids that are in schools now can be very sickly.
