The School Nurse Program is made up of a dedicated group of school nurses who make it possible for students with health conditions to attend school safely. These professionals are Registered Nurses and have multiple school assignments serving all grade levels. Coordination of health care services is provided to promote healthy lifestyles and behaviors, disease and injury prevention education. They assist with evaluation of specific medical concerns affecting student attendance and achievement.
Nurses are instrumental in linking students to health care providers and assisting with coordinating care of children with special health care needs and medication management issues. They develop Individual Health Care Plans and Emergency Action Plans for students in schools with chronic health conditions.
