What is a School Nurse?

School Nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the wellbeing, academic success and lifelong achievement of students. The unique contribution of the School Nurse lies in the ability to provide a comprehensive school health program that encourages the best possible health outcomes for each student. School nursing also teaches health concepts that enable students to make responsible decisions regarding their own health in the future. To that end, School Nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development, promote health and safety, intervene with actual and potential health problems, provide case management services, and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, and learning.

The School Nurse also links the school health service program to the community. The first responsibility for the student's health and well being belongs in the family. However, School Nurses must have the assistance of the family in planning, implementing and evaluating the child's health care plan. In order to provide the support that is necessary it is important to establish an open line of communication and maintain such through out your child's school career. Please contact your child's School Nurse with any questions or concerns. School Nurses are available as an additional healthcare resource.
