Each child has a right to a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. In every school there are children who are in the best of health and children who are challenged by various health conditions. Fortunately, medical and technological advances now make it possible for many children with chronic health conditions and physical challenges to learn in the same classrooms as other children.
In addition to providing a rigorous academic environment for all students, schools should promote healthy lifestyle choices, help identify and locate services for students with health conditions that may affect learning, and they should meet the health requirements of children with acute and chronic medical needs during the school day. School Nurses help make the provision of health services in a school setting easier and safer for both students and staff.
