The role of the school nurse is to collaborate with the educators to provide an environment conducive to learning. It is to assess and evaluate the health and development status of the student; be the health care liaison to the student; counsel, educate and find resources to assist in the student's health care.
We serve as consultants for the health curriculum; provide screening programs for diseases of the eyes, ears and teeth; keep immunization records; assist in placement for special education programs; and act as the giver of first aid in an emergency.
