Other duties of the school nurse are as follows:

  • Identify health problems that interfere with learning and assist families and schools to resolve them; 

  • Work with students who have chronic illnesses to help them benefit from their education;

  • Monitor the administration of medications;

  • Assist with checking permanent records for complete medical records;

  • Conduct health-related screenings as needed; and

  • Provide health promotion activities as needed.
