Nebo School District honors all school nurses who care for the children in Nebo schools every day. School nurses promote learning through healthy children. Nebo celebrates the dedication and commitment nurses have to their patients and profession. 

School nurses are often the first place a student thinks to go when they don’t feel well or have been hurt. But nurses also provide a wealth of information that supports a successful education as well. Nurses provide band-aids for scrapes on the playground and check for fevers when a child shows the first sign of illness. School nurses are first responders for medical concerns and administer mid-day doses of medication. 

Nurses advocate for students, too. In a school setting, school nurses make referrals for pediatric care when necessary. As a team member, school nurses play a vital role in guiding students to healthy lifestyles in Nebo School District. 

All the roles of a school nurse lead to healthier students who are better prepared for learning. 

Remember to recognize nurses in your lives. Give nurses you know a shout out and thank them for their hard work, especially during these challenging times.
