My heart always skips a beat when my cell phone rings during the school day and I see the school’s number pop up on the screen. I million scenarios rush through my head within seconds and I can’t seem to answer the phone call fast enough. I must not be the only parent the answers the phone frantic and upset because the school nurse makes sure to inform me right away that everything is OK! Whether it’s a bellyache, a scraped knee on the play ground, or a child that has a fever, the school nurse calls to inform me no matter what. My children’s care while in school it important to her and she always makes sure that something as simple as a paper-cut is reported to me. I deal with 100 “boo-boos” a day just between my three children… I can’t even begin to imagine how many she encounters in a school that holds hundreds of children! These are unsung heroes that deserve as much recognition as anyone else that your child encounters in school. So here are some unique gifts to show your kid’s school nurse that you appreciate them!
Does your child’s school nurse go above and beyond in not only educating but also comforting the students at their school? Then why not nominate them for America’s Greatest School Nurse contest!? Nominations will be accepted nationwide from anyone who would like to honor their exemplary school nurse. One nurse from each state plus Washington D.C. will win a prize valued at $500 and will be entered to win the grand prize: the title of America’s Greatest School nurse and a trip for a getaway from school sickness.
Nominations will be accepted from January 9 to February 23. Voting will be open from April 3 to April 16 and the winners will be announced in early May.
