The New Bedford Public School Nurses are important and valued members of the educational team. They offer unique opportunities for students to learn healthy behaviors, and to receive easily accessible health services within a school setting. They are specially trained in health promotion and assessment and respond skillfully to the ever-changing health care needs of today’s students. Using clinical knowledge and judgment, the school nurse provides health care to students and staff, performs health screenings and coordinates appropriate referrals. A student’s health status is directly related to his or her ability to learn. Children with unmet health needs have a difficult time engaging in the educational process. School nurses serve as a liaison between school personnel, family, community and health care providers to ensure that students’ health care needs are met.
