School Nurses

As school-based health professionals, you are responsible for the health and well-being of staff and students. School nurses, in particular, can play a primary role in the early detection of an IAQ problem when observing children who are sick. Illnesses due to poor IAQ may not, however, produce easily recognizable symptoms. If multiple pollutants are involved, tracing the causes of the student’s discomfort or illness will be your challenge.  Improving IAQ can reduce the number of student visits to the nurse’s office, reduce absenteeism due to illness, and enhance the general health and well-being of all students and staff.
