How many ways can school nurses ask for help? Here are articles from the past 48 hours outlining the plight of what is happening in schools.
This is a smattering of headlines from the past 48 hours alone. I can’t help but worry about what is on the other side of our breaking point because clearly, we are there. I receive frequent messages from school nurses who are either resigning or have decided to submit the letter they have been holding onto for quite some time. The glimmer of hope, vaccination for our youngest children being eligible within the next few weeks, is also fraught with concern because of the politicization of all things COVID-related.
What we can do is to provide support to each other. The next few months will be quite telling. Can we hang on to the thread of hope, that parents will agree to get their children vaccinated? What will happen if a large number of the eligible 28 million children do not get the vaccine? That is when we will know what lies beyond the breaking point.
