Health & Wellness

The staff here in the school nursing department prides itself on being readily available to assist students with their health and wellness needs here at school!  Both the Monona and McGregor campuses have nursing staff available full-time, and staff in both locations are available to provide expertise in nursing, public health, and education in a wide range of health topics:
  • Identify health concerns through assessments and observations.
  • Provide health care counseling or guidance to students, families, and staff.
  • Conduct care coordination including case management, chronic disease management, care planning, and assistance in finding a medical home or other health care providers.
  • Provide medication management.
  • Provide health screenings, referrals, and follow-up.
  • Ensure immunization compliance and coordination of other health mandates according to state requirements.
  • Provide health education, promotion, and disease prevention.
"The role of a professional school nurse advances the well-being, academic success, and the lifelong achievement of students.  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."
