Registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and clinic assistants staff school health clinics. The level of staffing is determined by the medical needs of the students enrolled in the school. Registered nurses perform supervision of clinic staff. Only licensed staff, registered nurses or licensed practical nurses should be referred to as "nurse." Clinic assistants should be referred to as "assistants" or "aides."
Emergency health needs arise from injury, sudden illness or the progression of a new discomfort or symptom. The main role of the clinic staff is the management of the clinic. It is important for school personnel to respond quickly, to provide first aid when necessary and to minimize further injury and/or insult to the student while he/she is at school.
Health services are to be provided with respect for human dignity and the uniqueness of the student without regard to social or economic status, personal attributes or the nature of the health problem.
