School Health Services
We believe that providing safe and high-quality health care in the educational setting results in better learning for our students. Our schools are staffed by both licensed school nurses and RN staff nurses on a full-time basis. The only time a school clinic will be monitored by an office staff member is when the school nurse or staff nurse is not available due to lunch, duties in a classroom, or lack of availability of a substitute nurse.
Licensed school nurses are registered nurses who hold a school nursing license through the Ohio Department of Education. They provide emergency first aid, conduct vision and hearing screenings, enforce state rules and regulations regarding immunizations, and maintain complete health records on every student. To ensure that the health needs of our students are met by a registered nurse on a regular basis, our RN staff nurses are available in the school clinics when the licensed school nurse is not present.
