CYSD School Nursing Services
 


Leadership - Community Health - Care Coordination - Quality Improvement


School nursing is a specialized practice of nursing, grounded in public health, that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of children.  Keeping children healthy, safe, in school and ready to learn is our top priority!


School nurses promote health equity by connecting children and their families with healthcare services, financial resources, shelter, and food.  As case managers, they coordinate care between the medical home, family and school.  They advocate for individual health by providing education on topics that promote safety and encourage self-empowerment.


CYSD school nurses make sure it’s always a great day to be a Panther!
 

Professional nurses are present every school day to support the education of our learners. In addition to treating illness and injuries, our nurses work together to provide the following services:

+ conduct state mandated health screenings: hearing, vision and body mass index (BMI)

+ track mandated physical, dental & immunization requirements 

+ coordinate in-school options for children to receive health care 

+ monitor public health and communicable disease concerns

+ administer medically prescribed medications and treatments

+ create individualized care plans for children with special health concerns

+ provide health education to prevent disease and encourage healthy living
