Albany -- All students have access to school nurses this year in Dougherty County. Phoebe Putney expanded its school nurse program from middle and high schools to elementary schools.

Hospital CEO Joel Wernick updated school board members tonight. He says all 30 schools now have top-notch nurses with specialized training in student issues."They're there for a whole list of things from assisting with proper medication taking, to screening for diebetes, eye problems, hearing problems, a lot of things that might not be easily picked up on," said Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital CEO Joel Wernick.

The hospital is spending 600-thousand dollars this year to add nurses to the elementary schools.
