Health Services

Watertown Public Schools are committed to promoting the health and well-being of district students. To achieve this goal, each of our schools has at least one full-time nurse who provides a wide range of services.

School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential. (Adopted by the NASN Board of Directors February 2017).
