School Nursing 101

School nursing is a specialized field within professional nursing that aims to promote the overall well-being, academic success, and lifelong achievements of students. School nurses play a pivotal role in ensuring the health and safety of students by actively intervening in both actual and potential health issues. They provide essential case management services and collaborate closely with others to empower students and families with the skills for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, and learning.

This practice of school nursing combines the expertise of two professional disciplines: nursing and education. It is well understood that children learn best when they feel safe, attentive, energetic, happy, and in good health. School nurses are key contributors to creating a conducive learning environment by identifying, preventing, and resolving health-related factors that may hinder students' ability to learn effectively.

To ensure comprehensive care, each Carroll campus is equipped with a registered nurse who is available during regular school hours. Moreover, Carroll's Nurse Manager and School Physician are readily accessible for consultation and support, enhancing the overall well-being and success of the students within the school community.
