More school nurses are leaving the industry due to low wages and fewer faculty for nursing programs to train the next generation. Pandemic aside, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that schools have one full-time nurse for every 750 students.

Support for Keystone Edition Health comes from Moses Taylor Foundation.
