People wanted to have a nurse at their school. A company was able to put a nurse there. Now some of the teachers do not want that company to put nurses in schools.

The company wanted to place nurses at schools because there were so few nurses available. Many schools have to do without a nurse. Children at the school needed someone to take care of them when they get sick or hurt. Also classes could have the nurse talk about health care to the students.

Teachers feel that the nurse should not come from an outside company. They think the nurse should be hired by the school. They say the company nurse does not have the skills to do the job right.

They want the nurse to stop working at the school until someone is hired to do it. The nurse will stay there until a decision is made.
