The mission of the Health Services Department is to facilitate each student's growth, development, and educational success by encouraging his or her health and wellbeing in a safe and supportive environment. 

"School Nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that enhances the well-being, academic performance, and lifetime achievement of children," according to the National Association of School Nurses. 

Penn Hills School Nurses help students learn by implementing the following: 

  • providing assistance and coordination of treatment for children with chronic health issues 
  • actively partnering with faculty/staff/parents/community providers to promote student wellbeing; becoming active members of student support/assistant teams; diagnosing and treating day-to-day illnesses and injuries that occur during school hours 
  • completing health checks as required by the Pennsylvania Department of Health assessing and monitoring all children's vaccines 
  • providing students and workers with health education and wellness programs offering nurse services as required creating a secure and healthy environment for students/employees
