Health Services at Northwest
Health services are provided in each building to students and employees by registered nurses and health-room assistants. Health-room assistants are trained and supervised by licensed registered nurses. The Director of Health and Wellness coordinates the student health and wellness services for the District.
The nurses encourage parents/guardians to follow a routine of having their child examined regularly by a physician. School health services are not designed to replace this examination or other primary health care services.
