Health and Learning go hand and hand. The school nurse has a multi-faceted role within the school setting; supporting the physical, mental, emotional, and social health of our students while supporting the academic success of the entire student population.
"The school nurse provides health care to students and staff, performs health screenings and coordinates referrals to the medical home or private healthcare provider. The school nurse serves as a liaison between school personnel, family, community and healthcare providers to advocate for health care and a healthy school environment. " (National Association of School Nurses / American Nurses Association [NASN / ANA], 2005).
My Main focus is the well-being, health promotion and health maintenance of the students and staff at Thrall ISD.
OH .... GO TIGERS!!
