“School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success and life-long achievement and health of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety, including healthy environment, 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” (NASN, 2010c)
JISD employs 4 medical professionals to serve on their Health and Safety Team, one RN, and 3 LVN’s. This team carries out all state mandated screenings; maintains current immunization status on all students as well as providing for any healthcare concerns that arise.
We believe any phone call or visit we have is an opportunity to teach and expand our community’s health care awareness.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding your student.
