My Students

I am the School Nurse for an elementary school in South Carolina. I have an amazing population of students and teachers at my school. My students come from a diverse background, some traveling forty or more minutes to arrive at school. Each day they are excited about coming to school and joining each other on their learning adventure. I am responsible for the health and well being of over eight hundred and ninety students and ninety plus teachers and staff during the school day, addressing both episodic and chronic health issues.

My Project

I am the School Nurse for an elementary school in South Carolina. I have an amazing population of students and teachers at my school. Each day they are excited about coming to school and joining each other on their learning adventure. I am responsible for the health and well being of over 890 students and 90 plus teachers and staff during the school day, addressing both episodic and chronic health issues. Frequently I need to provide snacks and hydration for some of our students. Since I have a limited budget I am looking for assistance in purchasing healthy snacks. Thank you.
