State School Nurse Consultant

The Health Department recognizes that school nursing is critical to the success of the school mission, and that often in the independent practice setting of a School District/Supervisory Union, school nurses can be isolated from other health professionals. As the National Association of School Nurses indicates, “as school nursing becomes more specialized and health issues of students become more complex, it is increasingly crucial that school nurses have state-level school nursing leadership.”

The school nurse consultant provides support to school nurses - in consultation and coordination with the Health Department's medical director, chief of public health nursing, the Departments of Health and Education's Joint School Health Committee, and district health office staff.
