With all of us working together, we can help each and every member of our community achieve healthy bodies, healthy minds and healthy attitudes.
School nursing is a specialized practice of nursing that protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential. (National Association of School Nurses 2/2017)
The Public Schools of Northborough and Southborough Health Services strive to ensure that all students and staff reach their optimal state of wellness. Our highly qualified nursing staff are available in each school to foster the growth, development and educational acheivement of all students by promoting social, emotional and physical health and wellness. Your child's physical and emotional health and well-being are our top priorities. Please feel free to contact your school nurse at any time with any questions, concerns or health updates.
