Welcome to the Nurse's Station

Healthy children are successful learners.

MedBag_2.JPGThe practice of school nursing began in the United States on October 1, 1902 when the initial role of the school nurse was to reduce absenteeism by intervening with students and families regarding health care needs related to communicable diseases. While the nurse’s role has expanded greatly from its original focus, the essence of the practice remains the same. The school nurse supports student success by providing health care assessment, intervention, and follow-up for all children within the school setting. Glance at a school nurse's responsibilities.
