The Worcester Public Schools Department of Nursing works to support the planning and implementation of all health services within the school system. We collaborate with other disciplines, programs, and agencies to integrate and improve all health services provided to students and staff. As healthcare providers, we work with physicians, parents/guardians, administration, teachers and support personnel to provide a healthy safe environment for students and staff. The nursing staff of the WPS’s, believe that all students possess the ability to learn and to reach their optimal potential. In order to advance the health, well being, academic success and lifelong achievement of all WPS students, we as WPS Nurses, must foster a link between parents, school and community
