Welcome to Health Services
The purpose of TCSD Health Services is to support and promote lifelong learning through advocacy of healthful behavior so all students can reach their optimal state of wellness. Registered professional nurses collaborate with families, students, teachers, counselors, administrators, and community service agencies to enhance and strengthen our healthy learning school communities.
Committment of the TCSD Registered Professional Nurses
It is the position of the National Association of School Nurses that the registered professional school nurse is the leader in the school community to oversee school health policies and programs. The school nurse serves in a pivotal role to provide expertise and oversight for the provision of school health services and promotion of health education. Using clinical knowledge and judgment, the school nurse provides health care to students and staff, performs health screenings and coordinates referrals to the medical home or private healthcare provider. The school nurse serves as a liaison between school personnel, family, community and healthcare providers to advocate for health care and a healthy school environment. (American Nurse’s Association & National Association of School Nurses [ANA & NASN], 2011).
