Welcome. Students learn best when they are feeling well, are attentive, energetic and happy.
School nurses assess students health needs and provide interventions to enhance their academic success.
"School Nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development, promote health and safety, 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."
