Mission Statement

Modesto City Schools nurses are Credentialed School Nurse health professionals and student advocates who promote health and safety at school and at home by providing anticipatory guidance and intervention, thereby facilitating optimal wellness and academic achievement. School nurses are credentialed through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
