Joan McIntyre, RN, BSN, Director of Health Services
School Nurses are registered nurses, educated to address the wide range of health concerns that impact children and interfere with their ability to learn. Our school nurses identify health issues in students that impede school performance, making it possible for students to receive needed referrals, treatment and enabling them to achieve. School Nurses provide health services that both prevent and treat illness so students stay healthy and in school. Healthy students have better attendance and academic achievement.
Health Services nurses provide care to all students of Enid Public Schools. Each nurse is assigned to several schools, but is "on call" for health related concerns and emergencies throughout the school day. Our school nurses are also a valuable resource for students, their families and school staff. Please contact your school nurse if you have health concerns or questions.
The nurses of the Health Services Department help Enid Public Schools fulfill its goal of educating the "whole child." Children can succeed academically when they are healthy.
