Health Services

West Fargo Public Schools employs 20 nurses for its 23 schools, and assigns those nurses based on the medical needs of the learners at each site. 

Our nurses assess learners’ wellbeing related to accidents, injuries, or illness. They are also responsible for handling allergies, chronic health conditions, immunizations, medications, and screenings. Per the ND Board of Nursing, nurses are not authorized to diagnose medical conditions.

If a nurse is unavailable due to scheduling, each building has a staff member designated as the backup. Therefore, in many instances where “nurse” is used within district protocols, another designated staff member may be working with a learner and their parents/guardians in the absence of a nurse.
