Students come to CHC Learning Center with a wide range of complex health needs. Often a student is dependent on medical technology and nursing care. We employ several experienced Registered and Licensed Practical Nurses to provide excellent quality medical care and a safe and healthy environment for students, in conjunction with families and community physicians.
A student’s health is directly related to his or her ability to participate in school activities. CHC’s professional school nurses strive to improve the health and well being of students, quickly identify and prevent health concerns, provide appropriate intervention, and minimize barriers to learning through the provision of quality care. Our school nurses also provide follow up care for all students within the school setting.
Nursing activities and services focus on assessing students’ daily health, developing Individualized Health Care Plans, administration of medication, gastrostomy tube feedings, respiratory care (oxygen administration, trach care, ventilator needs), monitoring of seizures, monitoring of skin integrity, checking and recording of immunizations.
In addition, we continuously educate our staff, share resourceful information with families, and promote health and safety to facilitate each student’s participation in the educational program and to foster their educational success.
