BISD Nursing Care Program
Scope of Care
We, the nurses of BISD, subscribe to the standards of care set forth by the National Association of School Nursing that states:
“School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well–being, academic success, and life–long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self management, self advocacy, and learning.”
Our mission is to provide culturally competent care, to recognize health conditions that would interfere with the learning process, and to promote the health of the students and faculty of Brownwood Independent School District.
