About the Nursing Department
Caddo has had School Nurses since the late 70's. Originally there were 16 Registered Nurses to cover all the schools in the parish. Today there are 15 General School Nurses who are assigned a cluster of schools (3-5 schools). There are 6 Special Education nurses who develop health care plans for special needs students. (4 of which assist pupil appraisal in the preschool evaluation process).  There is 1 vision and hearing technician that helps the general nurses with various screenings. There are also 8 Licensed Practical Nurses assigned either to a specific student or classroom.
