Students must be Healthy to be educated and
educated to be Healthy!
Wilson County School Nurses prioritize their school day according to types of medical issues that students have within the individual school (s) assigned to them. Students requiring licensed nurse procedures and students with emergency and/or individualized health care plans are the nurses’ top priorities. WCS nurses coordinate and oversee the school health clinics in each of our schools, perform licensed nurse procedures, and annual or as needed health screenings. Nurses are available to consult with parents/guardians regarding health issues that impact student performance and attendance at school. If students have medical needs requiring accommodations for them to be able to participate in their education in a school setting, or needs for individualized health care plans, the school nurse will work with the student’s parent/guardian and health care provider as appropriate to develop the plans and/or accommodations to ensure that the student’s safety and well-being will be maintained in the school setting.
Extra items are always needed throughout the year in the clinics. Each nurse may have a more specific need but here is a generic wish list requested for nurses clinics:
GermX, paper towels, tissues, peppermints, Clorox wipes, deodorant (boys and girls) and latex free bandaids!
