If you read My Student Couldn’t Be a Psychopath, you’ll probably notice that I call Tanaka-sensei by a lot of different title’s. School Doctor, Health Teacher, Infirmary Sensei, ECT.
You may be wondering ‘why not just call her a school nurse?’
I’ve actually been specifically avoiding that term to describe her because I feel like School Nurse really has a different connotation to a lot of Western Readers. There’s been no indication so far that Tanaka Sensei has a medical degree, but her training and skill set is a bit more extensive than many readers might associate with school nurses. She also doubles as a health teacher.
