School Nurse

School nurses are key clinical health providers in the school setting and are a strategic link in meeting the myriad of health needs presented in schools.

It is important for parents to learn to know their child’s school nurse and to maintain ongoing communications regarding their child's health considerations.  This relationship is essential to effective and successful health outcomes during the school day.

Because there are a range of health policies across school districts in the Commonwealth, it is important for families to understand both the state and their local school health policies.
