School Nurse Program
The Providence School Nurse Program provides a variety of free services at elementary and middle schools in low-income communities throughout the San Fernando Valley. The onsite services include:
- Mandated health screenings (height, weight, hearing, vision, scoliosis);
- Health immunizations, health education, counseling and referrals to children and families (via our Family Health First Mobile Unit), in elementary schools in the San Fernando Valley; and
- Referrals to local community clinics, pediatricians, and dental programs for students in need of additional health services.
