 {a1474b88-e943-4771-be13-3b8882c5fdd4}<h3>​​​​Role of the School Nurse Consultant</h3><br><div>School Nurse Consultants (SNC) help manage students with significant health concerns at individual schools, including elementary, secondary, charter, preschools, before and after child care programs, in the Teen Parenting Program and nursery, during summer sessions and through Child Find.  The goal of the School Nurse Consultant is to work closely with parents, health care providers, school staff and others to coordinate the health care of the student. School Nurse Consultants also provide direct services as needed by training and delegating to unlicensed personnel working with students identified as having complex medical needs.</div><div> </div>Collaboration with Special Education - School Nurses are an integral part of the Special Education Team and are responsible for a portion of the Individual Education Plan (IEP) that pertains to the students' health.  The School Nurse attends school team meetings and IEP meetings of students with complex health issues to insure the implementation of necessary accommodations for students. This includes the responsibility for students needing individual health care plans (HCPs) and 504 plans written in accordance with Section 504 of the Americans with Disabilities Act for a medical reason.  <br><br><div> </div><div><h3>Role of the Health Room Paraprofessionals</h3><br>All schools have an identified person, called the Health Room Para, who carries out the medical duties for a limited time during the day.  Other office staff members help fill this role in the absence of the Health Room Para.  The Health Services Department provides oversight of the Health Room Para and other unlicensed school personnel who are trained to respond to the immediate health needs of students.  Typically, Health Room Paras and other office staff members are not medical professionals.  School Nurse Consultants provide general training and develop safety plans involving first aid training, medication administration, and other skills as needed to assist in the care of students who come to the classroom teacher or office staff with a health need.   </div><div> </div><p>Please visit the <a href="" target="_blank">BVSD Health Services Parent​ a​nd Student Health Resources</a> page for information about immunizations, medications, Health forms and other district health policies.<br>​​<br></p>
