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