Today’s School Nurses provide episodic care, manage chronic conditions, track communicable disease, promote healthy behaviors, connect children with insurance and health care providers, and handle medical emergencies. They care for students with disabilities and for those who depend on medical devices such as gastrostomy tubes, insulin pumps, and urinary catheters. And they Act as a health care safety net for all children” (Keeping Children Healthy, In School, and Ready to Learn, Publication of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, 2010).
As the Nurse Manager for SISD Health Services my responsibilities is to ensure that SISD Health Services Department and its school nurses promotes, protect, maintain and improve student, staff and community health.
