National School Nurses Day is May 8, 2013

School nurses are entrusted with the health of our students while they are at school. Often times, nurses will be the first to respond to a students health needs.

From a skinned knee on the playground to the flu, nurses take care of our students to make sure they are healthy and ready to learn.

LAUSD thanks school nurses this week and salutes them as medical professionals who assist in the education and health of our students.
