Nursing Services

  • School nurses are an integral part of access to education and work to reduce and eliminate health related barriers to the education process for students. They promote health and safety, intervene with actual and potential health problems, coordinate communication with families, and train staff on medical conditions and diseases that affect our population of students.

    • Individual health care needs assessments for students
    • Health care plan development, revision and evaluation including Emergency Action Plans, Individual Health Care Plans and health related components of Individual Education Programs
    • Direct provision of nursing health care services
    • School staff instruction and supervision in provision of care for students with special health care needs
    • Instruction and oversight for medication administration processes in schools
    • Emergency and injury care, planning and training
    • Communicable disease control and outbreak response in schools
    • Assessment of school community health and safety issues
