School nursing, a specialized practice of public health nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates normal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders that bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potentials.
Richland Two's more than 27,000 students are served by 33 registered nurses. Each of the district's schools has a fully equipped health room staffed by the registered nurse or a registered nurse and an aide. Each day they supervise students who require properly authorized medication as well as direct other health oriented tasks.
If your child has a chronic illness, such as asthma, diabetes, seizures, life threatening allergies, etc., please provide this information to the school nurse to ensure appropriate care and a safe environment for your child.
