Your School Nurse is Here for You!


  • give students a place in the clinic to care for personal needs including: diabetes care, asthma care, breast pumping, wound care, medication administration and much more.
  • determine if a child is safe to attend school, or recommend further evaluation, which includes: excusing students with communicable symptoms
  • train teachers and students regarding health conditions
  • write passes for diagnosed health conditions
  • provide community resource information
  • I am here if you need help with any medical, hygiene or disability related concern for your child or student

What I CAN'T DO:

  • answer what is it? - only a Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, or Physician's Assistant should be entrusted with making a diagnosis
  • provide a Treatment plan - while I can assist in self care, I can not tell a student how they should treat a condition
  • give students over the counter medication - only medication distributed from parents, with permission forms, will be given to students at school
  • give students changes of clothing (clothes can be acquired by calling home via the school clinic's phone)
  • tape or ice athletes - this should only be done by the athletic trainers for the safety of your athlete
The National Association of School Nurses defines school nursing as: 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.
