About our Nurses & Health Clerks
- The Health Clerk is responsible for the health care of students including "delegated tasks" such as performing first aid and screening of ill children, administering daily medications, vision and hearing screenings, state mandated immunization compliance, health records maintenance.
- The School Registered Nurse Consultant is licensed by the State of Colorado Department of Regulatory Affairs (DORA) after graduating from an accredited school and taking nursing boards. They are available to the school to assist with preparation of health care plans for students with documented health concerns or daily medications, Individualized Education Plans (IEP) health histories and consultation, health related unit teaching, and are available at all times for consultation on health emergencies or concerns.
- The Health Clerk and School Registered Nurse Consultant work together as a team to manage an efficient and organized health office and keep the students in the school healthy and safe.
- The school has designated “back-up’s” who have been trained/delegated to care for students when the health clerk or school nurse are not available (secretaries, office managers, administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, etc).
