Welcome to the 2016 - 2017 School year!!!
The Monroe County Community School Corporation values the health and safety of all of our staff and students, therefore, we have six registered nurses, as well as a nurse administrator and three substitute nurses, that serve our schools.
School nursing interventions with students who have acute and/or chronic health concerns improve student health and provide a positive impact on school achievement and success. School nurses assist students to develop the skills necessary for successful self management.
School nurses provide health promotion, disease prevention education and activities for students, staff and families. While supporting goals to maintain optimal health and encouraging attitudes conducive to life long positive health practices, school nurses effectively impact the community as a whole.
Students are provided with services that help to appraise, protect, and promote their health. Services are designed to ensure that each student is able to access or referral to primary care services. Primary care services can help to control communicable diseases, provide emergency care, and promote healthy habits.
