Past School Nurse Needs Assessments:
Schools have the responsibility of promoting student health through screenings and education, providing free health services and ensuring complex health care procedures are provided to children during the school day. The ability to ensure the health and educational achievement of children in a safe, nurturing and disciplined environment is our mission. Certified school nurses play a crucial role in meeting this need. This report details the school nurse credentials, screenings and other provisions of school health services, student medical/health conditions and specialized health care procedures performed in West Virginia public schools.
