PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. -- The Georgia Association of School Nurses will gather in Peachtree City this month for its annual conference.
The association is facing a tough year for school nurses in Georgia.
The state ranks near the bottom of the nation in the ratio of nurses to students. The state has one full-time nurse per every 2,317 students, far outpacing the recommended number of 750 students.
And that likely will only get worse.
