They put Band-Aids on skinned knees. They stop nosebleeds with ice packs and they hand out a change of clothing if your child has an accident at school. They even administer life-saving medications when need be. We're talking about school nurses, of course, and they heal all day long. So what better way to praise these unsung heroes than by posting these Instagram captions for National School Nurse Day?
If you have a school-aged kid, then you’ve probably gotten a call (or 10) from your school nurse at some point, whether it was for something simple like forgetting to send in a health form or something more serious, like an accident at school. But now that you’re homeschooling your kids, you’ve also become an on-call 24/7 nurse, too. So you probably have more appreciation for school nurses now, during the pandemic, than ever before. And there's no better time to show that appreciation than on May 6, National School Nurse Day (which always falls on the Wednesday during National Nurse Week). So post a photo of your school's nurse or your child holding a "Thank you, school nurses" sign (or even a vintage school nurse photograph) with one of the following captions and watch the virtual hearts fly.
When you think about all the people who are a part of your child’s educational experience, don’t forget to include your school nurse. They're the ones who keep little minds happy and healthy so that they can learn and thrive during the school day... and beyond.
