A Registered Nurse and Licensed Vocational Nurse are assigned to our campus clinic.
"Healthy children are successful learners. The school nurse has a multi-faceted role within the school setting, one that supports the physical, mental, emotional, and social health of students and their success in the learning process. It is the breadth of nursing activities contained within the role of the school nurse and the unique non-medical setting that differentiates school nursing from other nursing specialties." (Excerpt from NASN position statement)
Please contact us regarding your student's health issues and concerns, hospitalizations and/or treatment changes. We can better serve your student to promote or improve his/her health and/or reduce time lost from the classroom with this input.
