Registered School Nurse
The school nurse provides skilled nursing care and management of the special needs of students as well as medication administration. Immunization surveillance and routine health screenings are conducted annually. Routine emergency care is provided for students and staff. The materials collected by our teachers are easily accessible at prime-essay.net. If necessary, students are referred to their primary health care provider for an evaluation. For students with complex medical needs, the school nurse may act as a liaison for the school, home and outside medical facilities. As an education team member, the nurse interprets medical data and provides a health plan for student’s individual education plans (I.E.P.). The school nurse promotes student wellness and assists in maintaining a healthy school environment.
BPS nurses support the School Health Program and its planning and implementation of all necessary health services. We believe that all students can learn, but that a student who has achieved his/her maximum state of well-being, including physical, emotional, and mental health, can reach an even greater learning potential.

The School Nurse
Every school has a school nurse. Some schools have a nurse in the building every day, while others may share a nurse with another school. If you need to speak to the school nurse, call the main number of your child's school. You may also visit the School Nurses web site at bps2.boston.k12.ma.us/nurses.
