This post is sponsored by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. All thoughts, opinions, and love for our school’s nurse remain my own.
Pfizer is looking for America’s Greatest School Nurse. After all, school nurses have an important role in our children’s lives. They are a safe, warm face when our kiddos aren’t feeling well. They are the first point of contact when sickness happens at school between a child and her parents. Pfizer understands this and is looking to honor school nurses for their commitment and service to our children, schools, and community.
Pfizer wants you to nominate your school’s nurse!
My children don’t get sick often. I’m thankful for this. There have been a few times where they have found themselves with the school nurse, and I have been grateful.
I know our elementary school nurse genuinely cares about every child. She was there when my child was stressed and worry from things happening at home. The nurse called to ask if everything was okay and talk to me about how I might relieve stress from my child.
On another occasion, I was called to school because my child wasn’t feeling well. When I arrived to take her home, another little classmate and my daughter were waiting. The school nurse mentioned there might be some shenanigans going on. I took it from there, suggesting to my child that saying you were sick to get out of school was playing hookey and not something for which I was very keen. When we got to the second stop sign, I said, “If you are sick, I will take you home and snuggle you, but if I find out you are not, this is going to get ugly. As we came to a stop, my child said, very timidly, “You should take me back to school.”
It’s something we laugh about now.
I appreciate that the school nurse was looking out for my child. That observation and her telling me helped instill a good attendance and ethic in my kid.
I’m sure you have a story that makes you love your school nurse.
This is why I have partnered with Pfizer, to share our stories and honor the best school nurses with Pfizer’s America’s Greatest School Nurse Contest.
It’s about recognizing the nurses who go above and beyond in caring for, comforting, education and being there for our students.
The America’s Greatest School Nurse Contest is now taking nationwide nominations for nurses who love their work and caring for our children.
At the end of the contest, one nurse from each state and Washington D.C. will win a prize valued at $500 and be entered to win the grand prize – the title of America’s Greatest School nurse and a trip for a getaway from school sickness.
How to Nominate Your School Nurse:
From the moment the bell rings in the morning to the zip of the last backpack at the end of the day, school nurses are there to handle every bump, fever, sore throat and upset stomach. They are the caregivers that look after children during the day, which is why Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin® and Children’s Dimetapp® have launched a nationwide contest to find America’s Greatest School Nurse.
The contest is running now through May 5th. Following are the details:
- Phase 1: Nominations are being accepted nationwide now through February 23rd from anyone who would like to honor an exemplary school nurse.
- Phase 2: One nurse from each of the 50 states and Washington D.C. will be named a finalist and will win $500. From March 27th – April 16th, consumers will vote for one of the finalists to win a grand prize.
