Student Health Services
Monitoring the Health of Students
School Health Services strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting the health status of children and by identification and assistance in removal or modification of health-related barriers to the learning process for individual children. The major focus of school nursing is the prevention of illness and disability, and the early detection and correction of health problems.
The School Nurse is well-prepared and uniquely qualified in preventive health, health assessment and referral procedures. Our program of student health services offers services which include the areas of health appraisal, emergency care, and communicable disease prevention and control. Our program is designed to aid each student in reaching and maintaining his/her best possible state of well-being.
