Student Health Services

"School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; 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."-- National Association of School Nurses (NASN)

School nurses are specialized professionals who provide knowledgeable insight into acute and chronic health conditions, and normal growth and development. Nurses can support your student by:

  • ​Implementing Individual Health Plans
  • Supervising medications
  • Providing First Aid
  • Acting as a liaison between families, students, school personnel and the medical community
  • Monitors communicable diseases
  • Oversees immunization compliance
  • Provides screenings
  • Health Education

Our school nurses strive to provide quality health care services to all students in DeKalb County Schools
