Credentialed School Nurses provide district-wide health services. The major focus of school nursing services is the prevention and detection of illness and disability:

  • Create school health care plans to support students with health conditions
  • Conduct state-mandated screenings: hearing, vision, and color deficiency
  • Provide first aid, and communicable disease control
  • Provide health counseling to pupils, parents, and school staff
  • Refer pupils and parents to appropriate community resources for suspected medical diagnosis and treatment
  • Collaborate with community programs to screen and link students and families to health resources (Lion's Club, Central Coast Dental Society, County of San Luis Obispo Public Health Department)
