Information for School Nurses
School nurses in the primary and secondary school setting face many unique challenges. Cook Children's School-Based Virtual Health program is designed to help you meet those challenges. Through high definition video and communications equipment, school nurses can connect with a Cook Children’s provider for assessment and treatment.
For school nurse’s currently participating in our program, school-based Virtual Health provides you with advanced tools and technology that enable you to connect with our pediatrician services and transmit images and data for quick, efficient diagnoses. The program tools include a video monitor and camera, as well as a digital stethoscope and otoscope. As part of our ongoing support, you'll find helpful resources below with information about the tools as well as other support documents. We will continually update this page with new resources, so be sure to check back often!
