SCHOOL HEALTH SERVICES DEPARTMENT
Welcome to School Health Services
It is the mission of the Blount County School Health Services Department to aid in the educational process by promoting optimal health. Today's school nurses "facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management service; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self management, self advocacy, and learning" (NASN, 1999).
Believing that healthy schools produce healthy students, it is our goal to give leadership and guidance in the development and maintenance of a total school health program.
Barbara Robertson, RN, MSN, NBCSN, School Nurse Supervisor
