Nursing Services

Health and nursing services support students by managing health related barriers to learning. Direct services are provided to students through the combined efforts of the district nurse, South Milwaukee Health Department, school secretary, designated teachers, and health room/instructional paraprofessionals.

The district nurse coordinates services through training and supervision of staff. She acts as a liaison between school, home, healthcare providers, and/or community resources. Health services may include medication administration, health plans, first aid/illness care, immunization records, special health care procedures, and health education.

If your child needs medication administered during school hours specific forms must be completed. These forms can be obtained from the secretary at your child's school.
