Pupil Services: School nurse services

Gahanna-jefferson schools nursing

School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success and lifelong achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning.

Gahanna school nurses provide medical care to students in our schools every day. For simple bruises and bellyaches, they may provide minor treatment and determine whether the student can return to class. They also work with families and physicians to provide maintenance care for serious conditions, such as diabetes and food allergies, that might otherwise prevent some children from attending school. Parents should consult their family physician for accidents or illnesses that occur at home. Students with injuries or other conditions that limit activity or participation in any school function must have a note from the doctor detailing the student’s activity limitations.

Gahanna school nurses also provide classroom instruction about hygiene, wellness and puberty at age appropriate levels. They can provide information on health topics of concern to staff members and parents as well. Nurses travel among multiple schools during the day, and their schedules may change depending on students’ needs. The easiest way to contact them for non-urgent matters is by email.
