Crisis In Caring: California's School Nursing Shortage Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Sat, Jan 25, 2014 -- 2:00 PM

If your child becomes sick or injured at school, legally there might be no one who can help them. In one Northern California school district, there is only one nurse for 14,800 students, 20 times more than the recommended national standard. A Crisis in Caring: California's School Nursing Shortage examines this growing concern by taking an in-depth look at some of the daily challenges facing school nurses, faculty, and students. The program follows a credentialed school nurse over the course of an exhausting day visiting a dozen schools. We also discover how telemedicine research from leading medical institutions is helping address this critical problem.
