What is health services?
The primary goal of health services is to eliminate/minimize health related barriers to learning. To accomplish this, health service staff, as part of the school team, strives to:
- Promote student and staff wellness.
- Provide skilled nursing.
- Protect students' well being.
- Enhance healthy behaviors.
- Encourage self-care.
- Assess and communicate student health concerns through referral to parents/guardians.
The model of health services in Anoka Hennepin Schools uses a combination of school nurses (RNs) and health para educators, some of which are licensed practical nurses.
