Schools Seek Funds For More Nurses

  1. D.C. officials, working with Children's Hospital, are seeking $7 million in federal funding so city schools can hire additional nurses to care for students with special health needs.

    The city has applied for a grant through the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and should know by the end of November whether the request is approved, officials said. The grant would increase the annual budget for school health services to nearly $21 million and add full- and part-time nursing positions, officials said.
