Health ServicesThe Health Services program for Forsyth County Schools advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; 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.
Forsyth County Schools are looking for substitute licensed nurses.
Are you a licensed RN or LPN? Would you like to work the same hours your children are in school? Our students will warm your heart, make you laugh and brighten your day. If interested, please contact Heidi Avila at 770-887-2461 ext. 202336 or firstname.lastname@example.org.The school nurse
