DOHMH STATEMENT ON SCHOOL NURSING SERVICES
The City was spending half as many resources per student on nursing services in public schools than in non-public schools. Given resource constraints, we cannot continue to provide a higher proportion of nursing services to non-public schools without jeopardizing services to public schools. DOHMH is working collaboratively with public and non-public schools to ensure that resource parity is implemented as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
