School Nurses ensure:
Currently, school nurses provide a range of services at all schools. School nurses play an integral role at School Site Team (SST) meetings, Coordination of Services Team (COST) meetings, Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meetings and 504 Plan meetings.
Some of our school nurses are American Red Cross CPR Certified Instructors. These nurses provide CPR instruction to school-based staff as needed.
At schools with a School-Based Health Center, the school nurse’s work is integrated within the services of the School-Based Health Center.
Health Services collaborates with the Alameda County Public Health Department, Children’s Hospital Oakland, West Oakland Health Initiative Breathmobile®, American Lung Association®, Vision to Learn Program ®, Prevent Blindness Northern California (PBNC), Children’s Vision First, La Clinica de la Raza, Big Smiles®, Diabetes Youth Foundation ®, University of California Berkeley School of Optometry, University of San Francisco School of Nursing, Samuel Merritt University School of Nursing, Coalition of School-Based Health Centers, and other health care agencies.
