School Nurses and Health Care Services

The main focus of our school health services is the prevention of illness and disability and the early detection of health problems.  Our goals are to promote the health and well-being of our students and to provide for an optimal educational experience.  School nurses strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting the health status of our students. Our focus includes the identification of health-related barriers to learning and the implementation of adjustments and accommodations supporting all students.  


The health educator/school nurse is a licensed registered nurse who has completed additional educational requirements and possesses a current credential in school nursing, a public health credential, and a school audiometry certificate. The health educator/school nurse is specially prepared in preventative health care, health assessment and management, and referral procedures.


Each school site has a credentialed school nurse on duty one day a week.  In addition, depending on the health needs at a particular school site, a Specialized Physical Health Care Assistant (SPHCA) may be available to assist students with health care needs.


Please contact your school site nurse for any questions and/or concerns.
