School nurse


School nurses are involved with health promotion and education, prevention of ill-health, immunisation, health surveillance and screening. They will inform parents and the family doctor if further action is necessary and act as an important link between home and school. The school nurse can advise on issues such as soiling, bedwetting, and emotional and behavioural problems.
