Special Announcement Regarding New Students

As school nurses we are on the front lines of Public Health and ready to do our part for all children. There are 50,000 plus children who have crossed US borders from Central American countries. New Jersey has received approximately 1,800 children and adolescents. Christene DeWitt-Parker, MSN, CSN, RN, N.J. Department of Education, Coordinator for School Health, has developed resources  for school nurses and school physicians in school districts and nonpublic schools that receive immigrant students recently relocated to New Jersey.

   School nurses need to know the laws regarding these children, and what kinds of health assessments, immunizations and medical interventions children may have received prior to being released from the holding centers. To access these documents, login to NASN’s website and join School Nurse Net and our community, New Jersey State School Nurses Association Community.
