Nurses do not always work at hospitals and clinics. The need for nurses in an academic setting is quite high due to many emergencies that can arise in a campus full of little children and young adults.

School nurses are responsible for administering medication to students who may be suffering from a disease. They may also work for the well being of children who do not have any health issues but are prone to diseases simply because they are in an environment where many different types of children thrive.
