School Nurses...A Profession That Makes a Difference

School Nursing is a specialty, requiring specific education and expertise in nursing, public health, and teaching in order to effectively deal with the numerous student and staff health challenges facing schools.

School Nurses are a vital part of the health of our schools and communities.  Every school needs a School Nurse every day.

My name is Tina Varney.  I am a registered nurse and have worked at Jonesville Community Schools since 1999.  I love getting to know and take care of your children!  My office is at the Elementary and I spend one morning a week in the other buildings - Tuesdays at the Middle School/Pathways and Wednesdays at the High School.  If you have any questions or suggestions please do not hesitate to give me a call or stop in and say Hi!

Too many communities, school leaders, legislators and policy-makers don't fully understand the vital role School Nurses play in both education and community health.  I will be posting key information, facts and statistics on this site.  Visit often as I add new information throughout the year!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please contact me at 517/849-9175, ext. 1404 or the direct line to my office at 517/826-7114. You can also contact me at tvarney@jonesvilleschools.org

"Efforts to improve school performance that ignore health are ill-conceived, as are health improvement efforts that ignore education."
"If schools do not deal with children's health by design, they deal with it by default."
