I have never been to this portion of the forum, so forgive me if this questions has been asked.
I'm experiencing an emergency at my son's school. We have discovered the school is in dire straits and many employees are doing their job, plus others.
The school nurse, who was a licensed RN, has quit I've been told. She was fabulous, but also doubled as the part-time school receptionist.
We were never notified that she was no longer with the school. I found out when my son was taken to the office. Apparently I wasn't supposed to know either, as several teachers lied to me regarding her whereabouts.
Here are my questions:
1) Do private schools require the school nurse to have an RN? LPN? I cannot find this current "nurse" listed under either of these two searches.
2) Is the school nurse required to be available at all times? Several students could not be seen immediately who required treatment as the nurse was "teaching his class".
3) Is the school required to notify parents of a new nurse replacing the old?
Thanks for any help you can offer!
