School Nurse


The School Nurse—as a member of the ReNEW Student Support Team—is successful when students have a clean, healthy, and safe learning environment, when we provide teachers and leaders the resources and systems to achieve ReNEW’s mission, and when we empower our staff to maximize their individual and collaborative performance.  The School Nurse does this by providing preventative health services to facilitate students’ optimal physical, mental, emotional and social growth and development.

Choice is Freedom!  At ReNEW, we ensure that students are academically and emotionally prepared to access the full range of life choices that are the fundamental right of every child in the city.
