Nursing

Overview

School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. The fundamental role of the school nurse is to help students participate fully in their learning environment by preventing, removing and/or reducing health-related barriers that interfere with development and learning. There is a natural connection between health and education.

How We Can Help

School nurses promote health and safety; intervene with and act on potential health problems; provide case management services, act as liaison between home, school and the medical community, and collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning.
