What is School Nursing?

 School nurses are employed by MAHEC.  They serve both Asheville City and Buncombe County School systems.  School nurses work together with students, families, and school staff to identify and follow-up on health related issues.

School nurses positively impact student health and academic performance by delivering school health services that include Health Education, prevention initiatives, injury and illness care, medication administration, chronic and complex condition management, trauma resiliency training, emergency preparedness and care coordination services.
