Our goals are:
- to promote the health and well-being of school children
- to provide for optimal educational experiences
The health educator/school nurse is a registered nurse who has completed additional educational requirements and possesses a current credential in school nursing, a public health credential, and a school audiometrist certificate.
School nurses strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting the health status of children. Activities include the identification and removal or modification of health-related barriers to learning in individual children.
The major focus of school health services is the prevention of illness and disability and the early detection and correction of health problems.
The health educator/school nurse is specially prepared in preventative health, health assessment and referral procedures.
