Keeping Students Healthy
Williamson County Schools nurses coordinate and oversee the school health clinics in each school. Nurses perform licensed nurse procedures and conduct annual or as needed health screenings. Nurses are available to consult with parents or guardians in regards to health issues that impact student performance and attendance at school.
Nurses prioritize their day based on types of medical issues that students have within the individual schools assigned to them. Students requiring licensed nurse procedures and students with emergency and individual healthcare plans are the nurses’ top priorities.
If students have medical needs that require accommodations to participate in a school setting, or needs for individual healthcare plans, the school nurse will work with the student’s parent or guardian and healthcare provider. To maintain the student’s safety and health in the school setting, school nurse will develop plans and provide the accommodations needed.
