Nauset Public Schools Health Care services Grades Pre-K through 12, promoting health and wellness in the educational setting.

Health Care Services in the Nauset Public Schools are provided by registered nurses.  The School Nurse supervises health office activities and assures compliance with regulatory standards set by the Massachusetts Departments of Public Health and Education.  A school physician serves as an advisor to the School Nurses.

Role Of The School Nurse

School nurses support the health and well-being of students who are well and those with acute or chronic health problems. We strive to keep the school population and larger community healthy through screenings, health education, and the promotion of healthy school environments. School nurses collaborate with families, school staff, health care providers, and community agencies. We act as case managers, clinicians, advocates, educators, health counselors, consultants, interprofessional team members, and sentinels for student health. School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances students' well-being, academic success, and lifelong achievement.
