Welcome to the Student Health & Nursing Department
Optimal health is vital to the academic success of our students. Therefore, the PCPS Nursing Student Health staff works with area pediatricians, Central Virginia Health systems, and the Virginia Department of Health to provide a broad range of services and care to our students. There are 10 school nurses who work each day in each school to manage chronic illnesses, handle emergencies, prevent and manage infectious diseases, and administer medication and treatments.
Our Student Health care team’s mission is to promote optimal health necessary for the academic success of all students. In partnership with parents, the school nurse will provide medical services centered on evidence-based practice, to link health, wellness, and learning.
The Vision of PCPS Student Health Services staff is that ALL students are healthy, happy, safe, and always ready to learn.
