SAISD celebrates National School Nurse Day

Fox Tech NurseSchool nurses are important to our students, and that is why it is imperative we show our appreciation to them—on National School Nurse Day today, May 10, 2017—and every day!

School nurses are instrumental to a healthy school environment. However, school nursing is more than applying bandages, taking temperatures and record keeping. School nurses also juggle an array of medical and social issues. Not only do they care for ill and injured students, but they also help teachers create a more effective learning environment by recognizing students’ developmental abilities.

Other issues that school nurses address may include good hygiene, oral health, visual health, illness prevention, nutrition, self-esteem and mental health.

School nurses are the unsung heroes for many children, and sometimes the only health care provider these children will see.

SAISD applauds the work, care and love school nurses give to the children in our District.
