School District Nurse

715-365-9235  fax 715-365-9568

As the school district nurse I am responsible for all pre K-12 schools. School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. School nurses promote health and safety; intervene with and act on potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self management, self advocacy and learning.

The goal of the School Health Services Program is to:

  • Coordinate and administrate nursing services.
  • Close the achievement gap by addressing barriers to learning and developing appropriate accommodation plans.
  • Work closely with families, students, staff and community resources to developan appropriate IHP (individual health plan, IEP (Individual Education Plan),
  • 504 Plan, or an emergency plan of care for identified students.
  • To provide health education and employ strategies to promote health and a safe environment. 
  • To attain knowledge and competency that reflects current school nursing practice.


The school nurse interacts with and contributes to the professional development of peers and school personnel as colleagues. The school nurse considers factors related to safety, effectiveness, cost, and impact on practice in the planning and delivery of school nursing services.  The school nurse integrates research findings into practice.
