Legislation to provide access to a qualified school nurse for the state’s neediest students earned passage from both the Senate Health and Senate Education Committees Wednesday.

“Access to a school nurse is important for students’ health and their ability to learn. But because of years of state budget cuts many students in California don’t have access to a qualified nurse,” said Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, the author of Senate Bill 1239.
