School Health Program

The school medical advisor, appointed by the superintendent, and the school nurse supervisor direct the school health program. Each school is provided with the services of a public health nurse specializing in the practice of School Nursing and other members of the health care team on a regular basis.

School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement and health of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety, including a healthy environment; 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 (NASN, 2010)
