School Nursing

After the child's home, school represents the second most influential environment in a child's life. As more students enter schools with health or mental health problems, pediatricians face the challenge of managing their care throughout the school day. The school nurse is the health care representative on site. Our qualified nurses have better understanding of the role which is essential to ensure coordinated care. There is a recognized relationship between health and learning. The major focus of school nursing services is the prevention of illness and disability, and the early detection and correction of health problems. Our nurses are uniquely qualified in preventive health, health assessment, and referral procedures.
