Nurses/Student Health

School nursing is a specialized practice of nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and lifelong achievement and health of students. Keeping children healthy, safe, in school, and ready to learn should be a top priority for both healthcare and educational systems. The school nurse is uniquely positioned to meet student health needs.

School nurses support good health and learning by performing a variety of duties including: direct student care; assessing student health needs and creating care plans; providing inservice training for staff and students; conducting mandatory health screenings; overseeing maintenance of student health and immunization records; administering medication; providing emergency first aid to students and staff; and working with the Department of Health in the control of communicable diseases.
