Infirmary


The School Infirmary is run by a full-time registered nurse. The school nurse serves in a pivotal role to provide expertise and oversight for the provision of school health services and promotion of health education. Using clinical knowledge and judgement, the school nurse provides health care to students, faculty, and staff; coordinates referrals to the medical home or private healthcare provider, and serves as a liaison between school personnel, family, community, and healthcare providers to maintain a healthy school environment. The school nurse supports student success by providing health care through assessment, intervention, and follow up for all students within the school. The school nurse not only provides for the safety and care of students, faculty, and staff, but also addresses the need for integrating health solutions into the education setting.
