Parents remain concerned about nursing situation inside the Holy Rosary School

Parents are worried about the rotating nurse system at Holy Rosary School.

Parents say they want the school staffed with a permanent nurse, someone who is familiar with their kids' needs. They say there should be a nurse on staff who is aware of the kids who have chronic illnesses.

Instead of having one full-time nurse, the health department sends a different nurse to the school Monday through Friday. But according to the New York Archdiocese, the majority of Catholic schools in the Bronx are currently without a full-time nurse.

Both parents and school officials plan to write letters to the mayor and the health department about the nursing situation.
