School Nursing

The Crawfordsville Community School Corporation is committed to providing professional nursing care in our schools. Our nurses are all registered nurses, licensed by the state of Indiana and specializing in the care of children and adolescents. We strive to help children to reach their educational potential by working to keep students optimally healthy. We work to provide individual care for children with special health conditions, as well as to provide a safe, healthy learning environment for all students.

"School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success and life-long achievement and health of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety including a healthy environment; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, and learning."
