The Nurse Consultant acts as a liason between the medical community, mental health community, educators, families and community agencies in an effort to fully coordinate the services each is providing to students.

The Nurse Consultant may assist families and teams with a variety of services.  Obtaining and reviewing records of students with an extensive medical and/or mental health background may help teams better assess the educational needs.  Identifying and working with physicians, agencies and other community resources may assist with the coordination of information and services.  The Nurse Consultant may also provide continued support for the student by facilitating medical appointments, attending team meetings and facilitating transportation needs of families.
