Welcome to the School Nursing Services Webpage

We are very fortunate to have a full time nurse in every building.  The role of the school nurse is to support student success in education.  According to the National Association of school nurses, “school nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and lifetime- achievement of students.”   

Franklin County is committed to meeting the health care concerns of our students.   The responsibilities of school nurses are very broad.  In addition to managing the clinic visits daily they also review student records for compliance of state health mandates, perform required screenings, consult with health professionals and parents, perform medical procedures as needed, promote health education for students and staff, and advocate for the needs of children.  

The school nurse serves as the health professional for the school community and provides guidelines for school district health policies, goals and objectives.
