Congratulations to 2023 #CelebrateSchoolNurses Video Submission Winners
AUSTIN & FORT WORTH, TX, May 10, 2023 – School Nurses advocate for the health and wellness of every campus community with compassion, warmth, and a smile. That’s why Goodside Health calls on schools, students, families, and community partners across the nation to celebrate those who care for our students this 2023 School Nurse Day.
“Goodside Health’s school-based health services couldn’t exist without the dedication and support of School Nurses,” said Goodside Health CEO Brian White. “They continuously find ways to create safe and healthy spaces for learning, and we’re grateful that that so many choose to make SchoolMed a part of their school day.”
By increasing access to care in the trusted setting of the school health room, SchoolMed has increased classroom time by an estimated 202,000 hours for the more than 1.1 million students it serves during so far during the 2022/23 school year.
Through SchoolMed, Goodside Health partners with schools and their health rooms to close the gaps in children’s healthcare with a program designed to keep healthy students in class and creates a pathway for sick children to get back to health as quickly as possible.
“School Nurses helped students get care through our telehealth program an amazing 16,000-plus times this school year,” added White. “The dedication they show to their campuses is an inspiration to everyone at Goodside Health.”
