In an effort to promote health, prevent disease, and assist students to achieve his/her maximum potential as a learner, the school nurse addresses their health issues through the use of theory, interdisciplinary collaboration, community health systems, and research.
Collaboration involves partnerships with the family, other school professionals, and with community health and social service providers and agencies. In addition to this, the school nurse provides age-appropriate, culturally, and ethnically sensitive care, maintains a safe environment, educates students about healthy practices and treatment modalities, assures continuity of care, coordinates care across settings and among care givers, manages information, and communicates effectively.

Dickinson school nurses and clinic staff are proud to be a part of your child’s education. Success in school is directly related to the good health and emotional well-being of each student. While we understand the primary responsibility for the care of children lies with parents, the clinic staff in DISD are here to assist and support each parent’s efforts to maintain good health in their children. It is our goal to educate each child, beginning in elementary school, to take control of their own health care management so they can grow up to be strong and independent.
What does a school nurse do? School nurses promote and maintain optimal student health by:
• Providing first aid and arranging for assessment and assistance to a child who becomes ill or injured at school or is demonstrating a significant change in behavior, whether due to a physical or social/emotional cause;
• Communicating with parents and guardians when further medical care or attention may be needed and making referrals as appropriate;
• Supporting the health curriculum by teaching health lessons to students and/or serving as a resource to classroom teachers;
• Educating the school staff about health matters that affect students and/or staff;
• Collaborating with other school professionals, parents/guardians and the student's health care team, as needed, to foster maximal student success.
• Providing health counseling to students as needed on an ongoing basis.
In addition and accordance with TX Department of Education protocols and schedules, school nurses conduct height, weight, blood pressure, vision, hearing, and scoliosis screenings of our children, and notify parents and guardians of any abnormalities found.
These are just a few of the things that we do to ensure your child is healthy and successful in school.
If your child has a health need that we can assist you with, please call your campus clinic or Erica Hollister at 281-229-6159.
