Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD is committed to providing professional health services for our students. A Registered Nurse is assigned to each elementary, middle school and high school campus.
School nursing started in 1902 when the first school nurse was hired in New York City as an extension of the NYC Public Health system to assist in controlling communicable disease in schools. In the present day, school nursing is a specialized practice of public health nursing which protects and promotes student health, facilitates normal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in evidence-based practice, are the leaders that 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 potentials. (NASN, 2016).
New medication or procedure forms are required each school year
Please notify your campus nurse about your student’s health issues. Please ask the school nurse at your student’s campus for an exemption form to opt out of state-mandated health screenings.
Required Immunizations must be updated before your student can attend classes. Visit Texas Health and Human Services for the required immunizations for school.
