Youth health nurse


An initiative of Education Queensland and the Department of Health has led to the placement of Youth Health Nurses in secondary schools.

In brief, the Health Nurse works with the school to address concerns about students health and well being, helps to promote good health and where desirable connects people to other support services inside and outside of the school.

The nurse is able to give confidential Health advice to students, parents, teachers and all other members of the school community. Nerang State High School will have the services of a nurse for five days per fortnight.
