Good health enables all students to benefit from the education experience leading to productive living and a successful future. School nurses actively promote healthy life style choices, strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting children's health status, and are advocates for school age children.
The objectives of the school health program are to promote good health habits, stimulate a sanitary, safe and healthful environment in school and to assist in the identification and referral to appropriate health care providers for medical, psychological and physical needs.
