Residents of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area who have been working to have a nurse at each school location now know this has been approved.

According to information that was shared by NorthCarolinaHealthNews.org, Charlotte-Mecklenburg school parents have been working for two years to get a nurse in each school in the county.

The approval for a nurse in each school will add 33 more nurses, which means a total of 161 nurses, one nurse for each Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools.

A group founded by Teri Sauer, N.C. Parents Advocating for School Health who stated she is impressed with the support this idea has received.

Sauer got involved because she has a child with food allergies and a history of seizures, according to McClatchyDC.com. Most parents involved feel a nurse is needed in everyone of the 161 schools in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area.
