Are There Enough Nurses in Arkansas Public Schools?

Take the survey being conducted and give your input.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - There's a push to put more nurses in Arkansas public schools.

A state committee is calling on parents for help.

Since September, the Arkansas Public School Health Services Advisory Committee has been looking into the ratio of nurses to students in schools across the state and the care provided by them.

The legislative task force has already gathered information and surveyed current nurses, now it needs your help.

"It brings awareness of the issue and tries to engage some of the parents. And by filing out this survey those parents have got to understand that they're going to help bring some change to their school," says parent and committee member Julie Mayberry.

One of the committtee's goals would be asking the legislature to require more nurses for students.

Currently, that ratio requirement in the Natural State is one nurse for every 750 students.
