The Venus ISD Health Services team is dedicated to ensuring our students are well and able to engage in the learning process. Our campus nurses serve as liaisons between families, healthcare professionals, and school personnel. We are excited to partner with parents to help our students grow and reach their potential.
Venus ISD school nurses are able connect virtually to a Cook Children’s board-certified pediatrician or certified nurse practitioner from the school nurse’s office. Parents will have the option of joining the virtual visit by logging into a secure website.
The school nurse will assist the provider during the evaluation through the use of special equipment as needed. The provider can hear the student’s heart and lungs with a digital stethoscope. The provider can closely examine the student’s ears, throat, rash, or abrasions with a high definition camera. If needed, electronic prescriptions can be sent to the family’s preferred pharmacy.
