The Health Care District staffs a School Health team of more than 200 registered nurses and certified nursing assistants (CNAs) in health rooms at nearly 170 public schools, caring for more than 160,000 students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. The School Health nursing staff provides nursing assessments, first aid, medication administration, chronic health condition management, Florida-mandated screenings (vision, hearing, BMI and scoliosis), no-cost COVID-19 screening and testing and influenza A/B (flu) testing with parent or guardian consent, referrals, and consultations with parents and providers.
For more than 25 years, the Health Care District has been committed to promoting and improving the health and wellness for public school students through a School Health Program that achieves learning readiness, prevents and addresses physical, social and emotional health problems, and enhances the students’ quality of life. The School Health Program is a partnership with the Florida Department of Health Palm Beach County and the School District of Palm Beach County.
