The Newton North Health Room is located on the first floor of the Athletic Wing. Among other services, the nurse arranges for students' health examinations and immunizations, does screening and makes referrals.
Students who need to see the nurse should report to class and get a note from the teacher before going to the nurse's office, except in case of an emergency.
The Department of Health and Human Services' aim is to protect, promote and sustain the health, harmony and well-being of all students in a culturally sensitive friendly manner. Our focus is on prevention
"School Nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success and lifelong achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and/or potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capability for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning."National Association of School Nurses (1999)
