The Role of School Nurses in the Colonial School District

Certified School Nurses (CSN) are responsible for the state mandated health services in the Colonial School District schools. They are registered nurses with baccalaureate degrees and additional educational requirements. They are certified by the Department of Education and have extensive backgrounds in school health, health education, counseling and the use of community resources.

In addition to state mandated responsibilities, the School Nurse is actively involved in Child Study Teams, Student Assistant Teams, crisis intervention and assisting students to recognize and address a variety of health problems.
