This week, a task force created by the Oregon Legislature presents its findings about the state’s critical need for school nurses, documenting an increase in the need for school-based health services.
It says about twenty-one thousand Oregon students in fifty four districts don’t have access to a nurse, leaving other (someimes untrained) adults to handle health-related issues.
KBOO’s Michael Pursell has more from the Oregon News Service.
