School Health Services

school nurse

"The school nurse serves in a pivotal role to provide expertise and oversight for the provision of school health services and promotion of health education.  Using clinical knowledge and judgment, the school nurse provides health care to students and staff, performs health screenings and coordinates referrals to the medical home or private healthcare provider.  The school nurse serves as a liaison between school personnel, family, community and healthcare providers to advocate for health care and a healthy school environment (National Association of School Nurses / American Nurses Association [NASN / ANA], 2011)."
