Role of LMS Nurse

In addition to assisting students in need of minor medical attention during the school day, the role of the LMS nurse is to work with parents and outside providers to ensure the best possible student health is maintained. Upkeep of immunization records, communication with parents about emerging health issues, monitoring for possible sports-related concussion, and administering emergency medication to students all fall under the LMS nurse's purview.

Role of SHP Nurse

Working closely with the school counselor and the academic advisors, the school nurse helps to ensure that students--in particular those who have utilized the Health Room—are following a balanced program of academics and extracurricular activities. She collaborates with those same people in identifying physical, emotional, or social concerns that may limit or impede an individual’s educational growth.

In addition to treating individual students, the school nurse helps ensure the overall health of the community by maintaining immunization records, advising senior leadership and disseminating timely alerts about health issues at school, and coordinating campus-wide preventive vaccinations, such as flu shots.

The school nurse also maintains and upkeeps epipens and AEDs disbursed throughout campus, and trains volunteer faculty and staff in their use.

SHP Health Room

The Health Room at SHP exists as a protected space where students can recover. With rest, medication and small interventions, students are often able to return to class rather than having to leave school.

Our mission is to respectfully and compassionately assist students to maintain or regain health in body, mind, and spirit. We commit to doing so mindfully, while conforming to the goals of a Sacred Heart education.

The decision to send a student home from campus is one occasionally made by the school nurse. More often, she assists the student in making that decision after conferring with a parent. The goal is to help students to make wise choices about their own well-being.
