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:
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.
