• School Nurse

     

    Let me introduce myself, I am Kim Boyd, RN, school nurse.  I have been taking care of Wendler students’ health since 2011.  Before that I wore a few different nurse caps: pediatric office nurse, pediatric hospital and NICU nurse, and research nurse, to name a few--all in all over 21 years of taking care of kids and families.  

     

    Do you ever wonder what the school nurse at Wendler Middle School does?  Here are a few of the things that keep me busy:

     

    I intervene with actual and potential health problems

     

    • provide direct care for illness and injury, including emergencies
    • manage and administer medications, including emergency medications
    • make sure students are fully immunized
    • screen students for height, weight, vision, hearing, and TB if needed
    • prevent and manage communicable diseases

     

    I address individual student needs

     

    • care for students with chronic conditions and medically complex students
    • implement health-related student goals and services
    • develop emergency plans and individualized health care plans for students with chronic conditions and complex medical situations

     

    I promote health and safety

     

    • Collaborate with administrators, teachers, staff and parents to ensure a healthy school environment
    • Educate students about health related topics and healthy lifestyles
    • Communicate with parents and serve as a liaison between school, family, health care professionals, and the community

     

    I am one part of a great team, working hard to keep students physically and mentally healthy, in the classroom, ready to learn and grow. 

    If you have any health-related concerns or questions, feel free to contact me.
