What is the role of the school nurse and nurse's assistant?
The School Nurse is responsible for coordinating and managing the health needs of individual students during the school day, as well as promoting health and safety for all students at their school. Nurses provide direction, training, and delegation to the Nurse's Assistants.
Nurse's Assistants care for ill and injured students, complete clerical work, and carry out delegated nursing activities (such as the giving of medications) under the direction and supervision of the School Nurse.
The Health Services Coordinator supervises and evaluates the care given by RNs and NAs. Working closely with other MMSD administrators and community partners, she is responsible for Health Services program planning, quality assurance, staffing, and responding to crises. She is assisted by School Nurse Leaders who provide program and clinical support to school nurses and nurse’s assistants across the district.
