School Nursing Services are an integral part of the Easterseals Linda Lanham Zeszutek School Program, ensuring that student medical needs are met and the disruption of school routines and activities is minimized.

School nurses provide direct care to the students as well as provide training to professional and paraprofessional staff to assure competency in medical procedures carried out in the classrooms and other school areas. Training is provided in medical procedures such as:

  • Respiratory treatments
  • Flushing feeding tubes
  • Monitoring and assessing seizure activity
  • Assessing and administering first aid as needed
  • Preparation, monitoring and administering of medications

The school nurse participates as a member of the classroom team by communicating medical issues and needs and how these may affect educational programming.
