School nursing practice embraces two professional disciplines - nursing and education. Children learn best when they feel safe, are attentive, energetic, happy and well. School nurses serve to ensure that students are able to learn by helping to identify, prevent and resolve health related factors which interfere with learning. 

Each Nashoba Regional District School has at least one full time registered nurse who is also licensed through the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The Coordinator of Health and Wellness and the School Physician are available for consultation.
