The Grand Rapids Public School Nurses will support students and their families to enable them to participate in the educational process by the provision of nursing services.  The focus is to promote health, maintain a safe environment, prevent disease and minimize the  impact of disability.  

Each school in Grand Rapids Public Schools has a dedicated GRPS Nurse, and in some schools, a Spectrum Health System Health Aide, who oversees the health and wellbeing of students and staff in that building. For more information about the health office in each building, please contact the individual health offices listed in the directory here:Health Services School Directory

The following practice model provides a framework for the evidence-based school nursing practice provided to our district by our high quality school nurses.
