Nursing and Health Services

School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, lifelong achievement, and health of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate normal development and positive student response to interventions; promote health and safety, including a healthy environment; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, and learning (National Association of School Nurses [NASN], 2010).

MPS school nursing and health services goals include the following:

  • Provide individual, quality nursing care
  • Encourage parent/child communication involvement
