Minuteman's nursing department is committed to maintaining a
healthful, safe, and supportive environment that promotes
optimal physical and emotional well-being and encourages student
growth and success. Our nurses incorporate teaching into everyday
practice, thereby fostering a greater awareness of the impact
personal wellness has on achievement and life satisfaction.
A registered nurse is available during the school
day to provide routine care and treatment of minor
injuries and illnesses and to manage health related emergencies. Our nurses
also serve as a valuable family resource to those in
of need assistance obtaining health insurance or identifying a
healthcare provider or community agency. They are members of the school team,
and actively facilitate communication and planning by collaborating with
students, families, staff members, outside providers, and public agencies.
