Certified School Nurses

There are fifteen certified school nurses currently employed by the Bethlehem Area School District. These fifteen school nurses provide health services to the 22 public and approximately 20 nonpublic schools. Over 19,000 school children attend these schools.

Health information should always be shared with your school nurse, either through a written health history or an individual personal interview. The information given to the school nurse is considered both privileged and confidential. This means the information will be shared only on a need-to-know basis for the safety and well-being of the child. Please contact your school nurse with any questions or to update your child's health history. Your school nurse will periodically send written requests to update health information.
