As your district nurses, we want you to know that we are here to help, support and answer any questions that you may have about school health. If your student has a chronic health condition such as diabetes, food allergies or asthma, we encourage you to work with your district nurse to help your student manage their health needs at school. We are also here to help with acute illnesses or injuries that occur during the course of the school year. We work closely with all members of the school team to help your student achieve optimal success in the school setting. Please do not hesitate to contact us!

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 a 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, 2010)
