The American Nurses Association (ANA) continues to advocate for the daily availability of school nurses in educational settings to address the safety and health care needs of the nation's children. School nurses are essential in promoting health, preventing injury, and providing direct health care services to students in order to achieve a safe and healthy learning environment.
ANA spoke out on the issue on “The Early Show” on Thursday. Nurses are encouraged to view the coverage here.
