I am a school nurse in a neighborhood school of about 500 students. We have children from all cultures, areas, and various incomes in our school. We are a family here at our school and we look out for each other.
Our students are bright and eager learners who strive to do their best daily.
I see quite a few children in my clinic for various reasons that range from illness to injury and just for some good old TLC some days.
We will play educational materials for the students to watch while they wait for their parents to come and pick them up in the clinic.
Sometimes they wait for hours with nothing to do until their parents come and pick them up.
Our students will benefit from a television in the clinic by helping to decrease some of the stressors that come with waiting for someone to come and pick them up. Almost all parents work now and so it is sometimes a really long time until they come to pick their students up from the clinic.
A television playing educational videos will help to alleviate some of that boredom, restlessness, and anxiety that comes with illness and injury at school.
