Creating and sustaining a school environment that promotes and supports student achievement, health, and well-being.
The model of Health Services in White Bear Lake uses a combination of Licensed School Nurses (LSN) who are RNs with a license to practice in a school, Health Assistants (HA) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN). LPNs and HAs perform health office/clerical functions, care for ill and injured students, and carry out delegated nursing activities performed under the LSN's supervision.
The Licensed School Nurse is responsible for coordinating and managing the health needs of individual students during the school day as well as promoting health and safety for all students at a given site. They also provide training, delegation and supervision of the HAs and LPNs.
