The Role of The School Nurse


    Using clinical knowledge and judgment, the school nurse provides health care to students and staff, performs health screenings and coordinates referrals to the medical home or private healthcare provider. The school nurse serves  as a liason between school personnel, family, community and healthcare providers to advocate for health care and a healthy school environment (American Nurses Association & National Association of School Nurses [ANA & NASN], 2011).

    Throughout the school year, I will be doing the following:

    Vision screenings

    Hearing screenings

    Scoliosis screenings



    Blood pressure

    Referrals as necessary


    Also, I will be performing the following teachings:

    Breast Self Exam - 7th Grade

    Puberty - 5th and 7th Grade

    Any other health related teachings to keep our students healthy.


    Thank you.
