School nurses provide care and health education

Children in many Milwaukee neighborhoods have difficulty getting the health care services they need. Through our School Nurse Program, we bring these services directly to children.

Our registered nurses work with children in a number of Milwaukee Public Schools. They provide care to students including screening for vision and hearing. For chronic illnesses – such as asthma, diabetes, seizures or sickle cell anemia – they monitor students' lifestyles and educate them on ways they can better manage their illnesses. They help coordinate care with physicians, social workers and school and community resources.

In addition, our school nurses educate children and families about the importance of preventive care and a variety of other health topics, including:

  • Anger management
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Human growth and development
  • Hygiene
  • Nutrition
  • Stress
