As I think back to elementary school, I can remember a few times when I started feeling sick at school, whether with a virus or the flu. I was able to go to the nurse’s office, where the nurse would help me lay down on a cool cot, administer medicine if needed, and then call my mom or grandparents to come and get me.
School nurses always have a hard job being exposed to so many germs and still staying happy and strong in order to care for all of the students in their school.
Regardless of how great school nurses are and how well we try to prevent our kids getting sick, germs are inevitable. We try to make sure out kids wash their hands, shower after they’ve been around a bunch of other kids, but kids are going to get sick. When it happens, Pfizer Consumer Healthcare are there for us with three solutions – Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin® and Children’s Dimetapp®.
Coughs and colds are going around here like crazy. For a child’s cough, you can trust Children’s Robitussin® Extended-Release 12 Hour Cough Relief to control and relieve symptoms all-day or all- night. For the cold, Children’s Dimetapp® Multi-Symptom Cold Relief Dye-Free eases your child’s stuffy and runny nose, while quieting a bothersome cough. Getting relief is sometimes the first step in getting rest and getting healthy once again.

My son’s elementary school nurse was so nice to both me and my son. When he fell at school, she called to let me know and when I was concerned that he might be upset, she let me talk to him.
Our school nurse is so kind and caring whenever our kids are sick.

My daughter was just recently ill. The school nurse too care of her fabulously until I could get to my daughter as I was at work 30 minutes away.
When I was in the 2nd grade I became very sick during school and the nurse let me lie down in her office for the entire day until my mom could take me home.

My daughter was recently sick at school, and the school nurse was wonderful till I got there to pick her up.
Oh we love our school nurse. Our little one fell on the ice this winter, and she was so good helping him and making sure he was okay. I love how she gets right down to their level to talk with them and check them out!
My 18 month old recently had pneumonia and really struggled breathing. It was so scary and pretty much all the dr said I could do was use Vicks and the dehumidifier and hold her. Thankfully that helped a lot but It was so tough to see her so sick!
