School Health Center Program

School Health Centers in both elementary and middle schools offer on-site care, health education, referrals and follow-up. Staffed by a registered nurse, each School Health Center focuses on education and prevention, rather than treatment.

School Health Centers in both elementary and middle schools offer on-site care, health education, referrals and follow-up. Staffed by a registered nurse, each School Health Center focuses on education and prevention, rather than treatment. When problems or diseases are detected, the nurse refers the student to an appropriate resource. School health nurses work closely with school faculty, incorporating the teaching phase of this program into the classroom setting. Nurses also work with children on an individual basis as needed. Goals of the school health center program are to:

  • Increase immunization rates
  • Reduce poor hygiene related illnesses
  • Reduce the number of accidents at school and at home
  • Reduce absenteeism and tardiness
  • Reduce childhood obesity
