NATIONAL SCHOOL NURSE DAY Wednesday May 8th!
How do school nurses help children learn?
The school nurses’ role includes:
~ Assessing student health status and making referrals
~ Identifying vision and hearing problems that impact learning
~ Delivering emergency care
~ Administering medication
~ Performing health care procedures
~ Disaster preparedness
~ Providing health counseling and wellness programs
What benefits do school nurses provide to schools?
~ Help students manage chronic illness, increasing attendance
~ Improved attendance = academic success
~ Addressing health concerns keeps students at school and parents at work
~ Allows teachers to teach instead of providing health care for children

It is our pleasure to serve the health and wellness needs of your children in the Glassboro Public School District!
