The goal of the Johns Creek Elementary clinic is to enhance the academic success and well being of each student through the joint efforts of home, school, and community.
The clinic is open for students from 7:30am-3:30 pm on school days. The nurse contributes to the education of the child with special health needs by assessing the child, planning & providing appropriate nursing care, and evaluating the identified outcomes of care. The nurse also monitors medical treatments and/or medications given to the student while attending school.
