    Before replying, please google this and watch some of the other stories about this-for example, this one:


    There are always 2 sides to every story and the yahoo story does not even come close to being an unbiased account.
    I read some of the comments on this story, including some by the mother and grandmother allegedly. Facebook petitions, people checking registeries for the nurses license number, calling her a fraud. Some of the replies are pretty nasty. I have a hard time believing that he was laying on the floor/ suffocating/ blue and no one including the nurse called 911. It's more logical to think he was being observed and neither the principle or the nurse felt 911 was warrented.

    Mrs. H. has a good point. This situation would be good evidence as to why it is ideal to have an RN in every clinic.

    I don't see why it would matter if the school nurse was an LPN or RN. Even an LPN knows that if a student is in a true asthmatic emergency, to give the inhaler. That doesn't change, no matter what your credentials are. Not all districts or states, for that matter, require that school nurses be RNs.
