Our parents truly appreciate the thoughtful hands-on care our nurses provide for our children – preschool to 12th grade – every day. We're fortunate to have two dedicated full-time registered nurses at school from 7:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Our Director of Health Services boasts a robust background in pediatric critical care, while our staff nurse brings four years of experience providing exceptional care to our students and families in the health room. These healthcare professionals really get to know our children and provide continuous support, care, and education. 

How Our Nurses Help Families

  • Deliver direct care to students for injuries and acute illness for all students and long-term management of students with special health care needs.
  • Provide assessment and treatment within the scope of professional nursing practice, communicate with parents, refer to physicians, and supervise prescribed nursing care.
  • Develop individualized health care plans for students with chronic conditions, and when appropriate, an emergency plan is developed to manage potential emergent events in the school setting (like diabetes or asthma). Ideally, this health plan is aligned with the management plan directed by the child’s pediatrician and regularly updated through close communication. The school nurse is responsible for management of this plan and communication about the plan to all appropriate school personnel.
  • Promote a healthy school environment by monitoring immunizations, ensure appropriate exclusion for infectious illnesses, and report communicable diseases as required by law.
  • Provide health information to individual students and groups of students through health education, science, and other classes.
  • Act as a liaison between school personnel, families, health care professionals, and the community.
"At FCDS, Nancy Hart and her Health Room team are extraordinary! Over the years, I have witnessed them provide exceptional care for students with acute health needs, ongoing health conditions, emotional issues, or a skinned elbow or knee.

No matter how large or small the need, students can always count on excellent medical treatment and compassion from the Health Room staff. The fact that students have full-time access to such outstanding health care providers is very comforting for parents!" - Karen, Parent
